Two experiments have been conducted to determine the effects of calorie restriction on cellular proliferation in female mouse tissues. In the first experiment, 25% calorie restriction led to a decrease in cellular proliferation, measured by the [3H]thymidine labeling index, in each of the 7 tissues examined. The duct lining cells of the mammary gland were the most affected. This conclusion was confirmed in the second experiment in which levels of 0, 10, 20, 30 and 40% calorie restriction were employed. The difference in response of the duct cells of the mammary gland and the crypt cells of the colo-rectum is discussed in light of the opinion that the formation of cancer of these tissues in humans may be markedly affected by diet.
