ABSTRACT
Ten rabbits were put on a control diet and the ten others were put on high-carbohydrate diet. Their biochemical and autopsy data are presented. This study showed a trend for rise in serum total lipids and triglyceride levels. Autopsy data on rabbits sacrificed after 6 months of study did not show any lipid deposits in the aorta and coronary vessels. It is suggested that a larger experimental study with a high-calorie, high-carbohydrate diet with normal protein and fat contents may be undertaken.
