Abstract : The effects on man of starvation such as occurs in war and in periods of famine, are very imperfectly known in general and are almost unexplored in terms of quantitative and functional details. Various groups working in liberated Europe are currently collecting valuable information but their findings are not yet reported and, in any case, will be rather limited because of field conditions.
