Comments "Table 2 shows the effect of undernutrition and rehabilitation on the absolute composition of the bodies of pigs and cockerels. In both species the undernourished animals contained a little more water, and the values for Na and Cl and for K and Mg, show that the water was quite differently distributed between the extra-cellular and cellular compartments of the body."
