The object of the experiments described in this publication was to gain information concerning the fate of a radioactive food fed to rats which had been made deficient in essential fatty acids (EFA). These experiments were designed to determine the effect of kinds and proportions of dietary fats and proteins on the distribution of a high protein C 14 -labeled food in rats that have been on a lo w-protein, fat-free diet and show the typical EFA deficiency symptoms.
