Method Abstract:"The relation between total caloric intake, body weight, and tumorigenesis, as well as the independence of these effects from those of dietary fat, were evaluated using data from 82 published experiments involving several tumor sites in mice."
Comments P.1989 left column 2nd paragraph:"Mean values of several study factors for the control and experimental (i.e., calorie restricted) groups appear in Table 2. Compared to the control groups, experimental groups consumed (daily) on average 29% fewer calories, 50% less fat, 11% less protein, 27% less carbohydrate, and derived approximately 30% fewer calories from dietary fat. In contrast, percentage of calories derived from carbohydrate was equivalent, and protein calories were 25% higher among experimental groups. Both final body weight and tumor incidence were substantially lower among experimental groups (by 25 and 42%, respectively). Each of the experimental-control differences was highly statistically significant (P < 0.001)." See notes beneath table
