This is a preliminary report of an experiment to study the effect on human beings of an exclusive meat diet of several months duration. The subjects were two Arctic explorers who had spent many years in the Arctic Circle and while there, had lived for the greater part of the time on a practically 100 per cent meat and fat diet.
