A consideration of the development of the blood–brain barrier and its nature is also involved (Dobbing, 1968). Detailed microscopic study of the process of myelination (Yakovlev and Lecours, 1967) has shown that this process may not be completed in some parts of the brain until about 30 years of age. The brain contains practically no neutral fat, that is triglyceride. The bulk of its lipid content is in the form of cholesterol and complex lipids – phospholipids, glycolipids and other esters which contain various fatty acids.

The growth and integrity of skeletal muscles depend on their activity: inactive muscles atrophy. Maternal muscle during pregnancy The protein available to the fetus during gestation seems not to be derived directly from the mother’s diet at that time but to come from the breakdown of maternal muscle proteins. The amino acid, 3-methylhistidine, is located mainly in skeletal muscle. When skeletal muscle proteins are catabolized during pregnancy this amino acid cannot be re-utilized and is excreted quantitatively in the urine.

81 food, results in a gradual proportional decrease in body fat content. The ‘fatness’ of the human body can be assessed by the calculation of the BMI. During the first 6 months or so of postnatal life the BMI rises rapidly, then gradually falls to about 4 years of age, subsequently rising again.
