The capabilities of a relatively simple instrumental neutron activation analysis procedure were demonstrated by performing multielement analyses of 240 Food and Drug Administration Total Diet Studies food composites. The analytical results provide a comprehensive database for a wide range of food types. The procedure incorporates only two irradiations and(More)
The levels of 20 elements (Al, Ca, Cd, Cl, Co, Cu, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, Mo, Na, Ni, P, Pb, Rb, Sb, Se, V, and Zn) are reported for kidney, liver, muscle, spleen, and brain tissues taken from two groups of six steers per group in a feeding study conducted at Colorado State University. The control group was fed a normal feedlot cattle ration and the test group was(More)
Findings in the Food and Drug Administration's Radionuclides in Foods program are summarized for samples collected between October 1, 1982, and September 30, 1986. All radionuclide findings for Total Diet and reactor samples were either in Action Range I or low in Range II of the surveillance and control recommendations given by the Federal Radiation(More)
Samples from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's total-diet, market-basket program, samples of imported foods, and samples collected near nuclear power plants were analyzed for radionuclides. Most radionuclides were below the limit of detection for a majority of the samples; however, data are reported for 3H, 90Sr and 137Cs in certain samples. Generally(More)
A rehabilitation center is another form of health care organization that specializes in providing care for particular conditions of patients. Patients admitted in rehab centers range from being accident victims to those suffering with a specific illness. These organizations are becoming extremely valuable in providing patient care services. However, they(More)
Second generation mice were exposed to normal (50 ppm, Group I) or excess (2000 ppm, Group II) zinc in the maternal diet during gestation and lactation, then weaned and continued on the mother's diet until sacrifice at 8 weeks. Tibia zinc reflected dietary intake. Group II had reduced plasma copper, body weight, and hematocrit; the second coat of hair(More)
