Nutrition and the pulmonary parenchyma.

Abstract

Fasting and starvation affect various aspects of lung structure and function in experimental animals. Short-term food deprivation influences lung metabolism and biochemistry; prolonged partial food restriction affects lung structure and mechanics as well. This article provides a historical review of the topic and summarizes data obtained in humans and animals.
