The combined effect of the duration of loaded physical exercise and the percentage of calcium intake on the mandible and tibia were studied in developing male rats. For the loaded exercise, rats ran on a treadmill at a rate of 12 m per min for either 1 or 2 h per day. A total of 54 4-week-old male Wistar rats were randomly assigned to one of six groups. After 4 weeks of the diet and loaded exercise, the rats were killed and their mandibles and tibia were removed. Each individual bone was… CONTINUE READING
