A freeze-dried human diet, based on linoleic acid-enriched food stuffs derived from ruminants, was evaluated and compared with a similarly-prepared diet based on conventional ruminant-derived foodstuffs, using Porton rats in a whole-of-life study. A cereal-based stock diet was used for comparison. Serum biochemical and histopathological examinations were carried out at 0.25, 1.1 and 2.1 years of age and other rats were left until they died of natural causes.

Thiazolidine-4-carboxylic acid (TC) is a cyclic sulfur amino acid, a condensation product of cysteine and formaldehyde. The chemistry, biological effects and clinical use of TC are reviewed. Extensive animal experiments and studies on human subjects carried out in Europe indicate that a combination of TC and folic acid, 'Folcysteine', has revitalizing effects on age-related biochemical variables of blood and tissues. Further animal studies confirmed the anti-toxic effects of TC, particularly on the liver.
