PART III
U.S. ARMY PRESENTATIONS: A REEVALUATION OF SODIUM REQUIREMENTS FOR WORK IN THE HEAT

OVERVIEW

PART III CONSISTS OF THREE CHAPTERS that present different aspects of a team research project undertaken by the Army at the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine. This project focused on the important issue of the level of dietary sodium needed for work during heat acclimation. The study was conducted with volunteers in the temperature controlled environmental chambers in Natick, Massachusetts. Similar to the participants whose papers form Part II, all authors of papers in Part III were asked to provide copies of at least three background articles related to their portion of the project to the Committee on Military Nutrition Research prior to the workshop. There was a recorded question and answer period at the end of each presentation. Selected questions directed toward the speakers and their responses are included at the end of each chapter. After the workshop, all authors were given the opportunity to revise or add to their papers based on committee questions. The papers were then submitted in writing and used by the committee in the development of Part I. All recommended background articles and selected references from the chapters in Part III are included in the Selected Bibliography on Nutritional Needs in Hot Environments in Appendix B. The research reported in these chapters has relevance to all individuals who are concerned about their diets and exercise in the hot environments whether outdoors or in more climatically controlled settings such as indoor tracks, gymnasiums, and racket courts.
