Abstract The relative influence of a genetic trait, the ability to taste phenylthiocarbamide (PTC), on rating bitterness of cabbage and liking it, and on the use of Brassica vegetables was examined among 32 subjectively healthy women, 53 to 76 years of age. Sensitivity to PTC was assessed with a forced choice staircase procedure. Flavour intensity and hedonic ratings of cabbage in raw and cooked form were obtained by quantitative descriptive analysis techniques. Frequency of use of Brassica vege...

Abstract The validity of a self-administered semi-quantitative food frequency questionnaire was evaluated for a group of 27 men and women aged 20 to 54. Intakes of 18 nutrients computed from the questionnaire were compared with those derived from 1-year diet records completed approximately 18 months earlier. The questionnaire estimates of mean nutrient intake were within 10% of the mean diet record measurements for 11 of the 18 nutrients evaluated, and the difference was less than 25% for all bu...

: Living arrangements and dietary patterns were examined for 3,477 adults aged 65 to 74 from the first National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1971 to 1974 (NHANES I). Several indicators of dietary variety, diet composition, and energy and nutrient intake from both the 24-hour recall, and the dietary frequency questionnaires were analyzed. Dietary patterns of older men were associated more strongly with type of living arrangement and income compared with older women. Men living with a s...

: As the size of the elderly population grows, nutrition for the elderly has assumed increasing significance. Osteoporosis is a prime example of a disease which is, at least partially, nutritionally related and of great importance in this population. Not only may essential nutrients be in short supply in the diet during later years, but impaired absorption and utilization may actually dictate increased amounts to prevent disease. The optimal amount of protein in the diet is not yet known, but a ...

Abstract The diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis remains primarily clinical. Available diagnostic criteria represent minimum requirements and cannot adequately describe the broad areas of variability in clinical manifestations, natural history, and severity, nor the probable heterogeneity in etiology and pathogenesis. Host factors that determine clinical course and response to treatment are poorly defined and often not considered in therapeutic trials. Traditionally, treatments ...

Nutrient intake of elderly persons as determined by dietary histories based on food frequencies was examined in relation to various socioeconomic factors. A significantly larger proportion of women than of men had inadequate intakes for energy, calcium, iron, thiamin, and riboflavin. Housing, education, marital status, and work experiences were significantly related to the intake of one or more nutrients. Dietary ratings based on the Recommended Dietary Allowances for nine nutrients indicated th...

Food use frequency and food perception analyses were used to assess food use patterns of non-institutionalized, subjectively healthy seniors, aged 65 to 77 years and living alone. The majority of the sample maintained variety and nutritional balance in food selection; the women showed greater use several items, particularly fruits and vegetables. Tea, whole wheat bread, eggs, coffee, potatoes, margarine, carrots, and orange juice ranked highest in the core food list. Perceived taste and health b...

: Detection thresholds for each of the four basic taste qualities were obtained from 81 adults between 23 and 88 years of age. Sodium chloride thresholds show a small but significant increase with age, confirming the only previous observations derived from procedures that control for age-related changes in response criterion and salivary sodium. Quinine sulfate thresholds display a similar but weaker relation to age. Sucrose and citric acid thresholds are not significantly related to age. Citric...
