Abstract : Rations containing 35% dry solids of control or irradiated (2.79 or 5.58 megarad) jam have been fed to four generations of rats. Statistical analysis of the data revealed no treatment effects with respect t growth, breeding, longevity or hematology. It is of interest that the analyses of the longevity data indicated that on the jam ration the female animals lived for a longer period than the males. (Author)
