... , did you have an actual measure of protein intake in the women who responded to your survey? ALANA CL1NE: No, we don't have an actual number of grams of protein, but we have the information on food category intake, so we will be able to take a look at that.
From page 342...
... We have a new carbohydrate drink that has just been fielded, and maybe Pat Dunne can talk about that, a maltodextran drink, which was really the result some of the field studies done by ARIEM, and they finally recommended that it get type-classified. Actually, the USARIEM folks and the Natick folks have been ahead of the game there.
From page 343...
... You can change animal protein for soy or a vegetable protein mix on a gram for gram basis and keep the fat contents the same in the diet and observe lipid-lowering effects. There is a fair amount of epidemiology supporting the belief that these effects and the phytoestrogen effects may be the reason you can get protection for prostate
From page 344...
... The most common operations done in the United States are cataract operations, and if you take the people over 65 and divide them into quartiles, the people who eat five or more vegetables a day have an incidence of cataract surgery of 5 percent or less, and the people who eat zero to one helping a day have an incidence of cataract surgery of something like 25 or 30 percent. This is presumably preventable through long-term nutrition.

... DOUGLAS WILMORE: That might be ideal. Clearly, what would be ideal would be to genetically manipulate plant protein so that we would have a highglutamine plant protein source, for example, or a profile of amino acids that would be more desirable for certain kinds of conditions.
From page 346...
... We issued a report not too long ago on the subject of not eating enough, and in that report the committee made a strong recommendation that, just as the military has a water doctrine, there ought to be a food doctrine; in other words, that soldiers and military personnel should be educated to understand that food is the fuel that runs them, just as diesel is the fuel that runs their motorized equipment, and that they need to be aware of the potential adverse effects of energy deficits in the field. Now, we know there are a lot of things that contribute to why soldiers don't eat enough.
