Changing Frequency of Arteriosclerosis in Mammals and Birds at the Philadelphia Zoological Garden
Review of Autopsy Records
From 1901 through 1932 arteriosclerosis was found in less than 3 per cent of autopsies on mammals and birds at the Philadelphia Zoological Garden, but thereafter its frequency has increased to about 20 per cent. This study has attempted to identify factors that may be associated with this change in frequency.
