Abstract

(1) Metals dissolve enough in milk to supply the requirements for rapid regeneration of hemoglobin in rat and man.

(2) Copper alone is effective but less so than when accompanied by other metals, especially iron.

(2) Much less mortality occurs among rats fed on metallized milk than when salts of the metals are used in anemia tests.

(4) These metals produce no odor, color, taste or other observed change in milk with the quantities used unless they are exposed to air and milk.
