In the previous report, the effect of the excess glycine on cholesterol level in serum, in liver and in adrenal was examined. In this paper, composition of fatty acids in liver fat was investigated, and gas-liquid chromatography was used for the analysis of fatty acids. From the results obtained, it was seen that the percentage of linoleic acid in liver fat increased by the addition of 5% glycine on the diet.
We reported previous paper that we could observe an interesting correlation between the weight of gestating mother, lactating mother and infant baby and the difference of protein intakes at first generation to forth generation. This report was observed fifth generation to seventh generation. The animal consists of a group of rats feeded by high protein diet (protein content 26%), moderate protein diet (protein content 13%) and low protein diet (protein content 7%). All were feeded the same diet through the growing age, gestating period and lactating period. The group of rats were feeded high protein diet showed more effective growth of body weight than the other two moderate and low protein diet groups. There were the significant difference among the each of three groups in every generation. Hematocrit, hemoglobin and serum-proteins were mesured. In these, there were no significant difference among the three groups through all priod. But compering to Pre-gestation and the first week and the second week of lactating period, there were 1% significant differences. between them. And also at the body weight and serum-protein, there were significant differences among the generations. These tendency showes same as the course of body weight.
Body weight of horsemen are strictly controlled under 50kg through dietetics. Their food intake showed inadequacy of protein, vitamin B1, B2 and calcium comparing dietary allowance. By clinical studies 5 subjects of 10 showed loss of knee jerks. Specific gravity of blood, pulse rate at rest and work, E. K. G were studied, showing low level of nutrition.
A survey of the nutritional intake in pregnants who attended the maternal clinics at Kawasaki-Chuo Health Center was carried out during three months from August to November in 1965. Among the pregnants who attended the clinics, 192 cases were able to be checked on the nutritional intake and component of food stuffs. As the result, only 4.2% of the cases was found to take over 70% of the nutritional requirement of 10 nutrients, e. g. Calorie, Protein, Animal Protein, Fat, Fe, Ca, V. A, V. B1, V. B2 and V. C. And it was found that there was much variety among the intakes of each nutrients. The comprehensive guidance in well-balanced food from the nutritional point of view is considered to be necessary in Health Center. It is also considered that the present requirement itself might be little higher compared with existing circumstances.
