OBJECTIVE To identify characteristics and factors associated with increased risk for stress fractures in military women. DESIGN Case-control study to retrospectively examine physical activity, prior calcium intake, and bone density as predictors of stress fractures. SETTING A military training installation which incorporates physical training for women.(More)
A new method was developed that enables milk yield to be estimated from pup weight and pup weight gain in well-nourished rats. Daily milk yield, body weight, and daily weight gain were measured over 4-5-day periods in 38 suckling pups aged 3-13 days postpartum. Each 24-h period was divided into consecutive 6-h cycles, during which dams and pups were(More)

We previously demonstrated that hyperglycemic-obese (obob) mice fed a 1% corn oil diet accumulated 10 times as much hepatic cholesterol as did their non-obese (+/?) littermates fed this diet because of difficulty in removal of cholesterol from the liver rather than from increased synthesis. Furthermore, feeding the bile acid analog(More)
Plate waste was determined in fifty-eight elementary and high schools in the USDA Western, Midwestern, and Southwestern Regions. By weighing sample trays and edible waste, the percentage of food served that was consumed was measured for 23,000 lunches. Highest consumption was recorded for milk, with 88 and 94 per cent consumed in the fifth and tenth grades(More)
An interlaboratory study involving protein efficiency ratio (PER), net protein ratio (NPR), relative NPR (RNPR) and relative nitrogen utilization (RNU) was carried out. Six collaborators assayed 6 samples, including casein plus methionine which was used as a reference protein. Collaborators prepared their own diets and analyzed the diets for nitrogen. Test(More)
Protein synthesis was studied in mammary tissue of rats fed diets deficient in protein quality and/or restricted in food intake throughout gestation and lactation. Diets containing 25% wheat gluten (WG), wheat gluten plus lysine and threonine (WGLT), or casein (C) were pair-fed from conception until day 15 of lactation at 100% or 85% of WG ad libitum(More)
The effects of dietary protein and environmental conditions on lactation performance in rats were evaluated. Female rats were fed from conception until day 9 of lactation diets containing 21% wheat protein (21W), 21% casein + methionine (21CM) or 11% casein + methionine (11CM). At parturition, dams were kept in their normal environment (20 degrees C) or(More)
Rate of protein synthesis in mammary tissue and liver as well as pup weight and milk yield were measured at d 15 of lactation in rats fed throughout gestation and lactation diets that varied in protein quality (wheat, wheat supplemented with lysine and threonine or casein supplemented with methionine), protein quantity [11 or 21% (wt/wt)] and feeding level(More)
A series of experiments was carried out in which effects of dietary protein and energy on protein synthesis during lactation were evaluated. Purified diets were fed to female rats from conception until d 15 of lactation. Protein supplied by wheat gluten, gluten + lysine + threonine or casein + methionine was fed at 20 or 25% in the diet.
