The effect of diet on the lethality of 1, 2‐dimethylhydrazine (DMH) injections was investigated using Swiss mice. Mortality was highest when mice were fed a nutrient‐diluted/high‐fat diet, was intermediate with a nutrient‐diluted/low‐fat diet and was lowest with laboratory chow. Wheat bran was not protective. Mice developed tolerance to DMH after receiving several injections of progressively increasing dose.
