The work is described as "study of the interrelationship between the diet and the biohcemical changes that take place during the last half of life." "The purpose of this study," the outline of the work states, "Will be the development of diets to retard the changes in the animal body that come with old age and senility in order to extend tie useful fraction of life span of man and domestic animals.
