The Effects Produced by Decreasing the Calcium and Phosphorus Intake on Calcium and Phosphorus Absorption and Deposition and on Various Bodily Constituents of the Rat

Description: Summary of a report that studied the effects of lowering the calcium and phosphorus intake of albino rats one week after they were weaned. They discovered that the amounts of calcium and phosphorus were lowered however they did keep appearing even when the bare minimum was used. This in turn affected the wet weight, dry weight, ash and calcium and phosphorus levels in the rats' bones.

[Letter from Benjamin R. Harris to Dr. Meyer Bodansky - December 4, 1940]

Description: Letter from Benjamin R. Harris to Dr. Bodansky, giving a brief description of the conference between him and Dr. Calvary, who discussed the purpose of feeding tests at high levels which is to study whether a substance is toxic or not. If the substance turns out to be toxic, it then goes into long-term testing to study for any chronic effects. If the substance is not toxic, it proceeds to a feeding test. The letter goes on to discuss how Dr. Calvary was unreasonable when it came to helping the Emulsol Corporation at times.
