Mean body weights of rats receiving either a control or EVA supplemented diet. Mean (± SEM) body weights of male (a) and female (b) rats, measured weekly from birth until 16 weeks of age (end of study). Groups of 7 male and 7 female rats from each of the control and EVA groups were sacrificed at 5, 9, or 16 weeks of age; therefore, /group until 5 weeks, /group until 9 weeks, and /group until 16 weeks of age. Asterisks indicate significant differences as compared to age-matched controls ().
