  DNR - Malnutrition and Starvation
Deaths attributed to malnutrition and starvation are seen in young birds during the hatching season due to parent neglect, or once they are fledged from the nest, the inability to acquire their own food.
To grossly diagnose starvation, the overall physical condition of the animal must be determined by examining for the presence or lack of adipose tissue (fat deposits) in the various subcutaneous and visceral locations.
In mammals, the effects of starvation on a pregnant female and her fetus(es) may be seen in utero, or after birth.

  Starvation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Starvation is a severe reduction in vitamin, nutrient, and energy intake, and is the most extreme form of malnutrition.
For instance, in the year 31, Livilla, niece and daughter-in-law of Tiberius, was discreetly starved to death by her mother for her adulterous relationship with Sejanus and for her complicity in the murder of her own husband, Drusus the Younger.
Another daughter-in-law of Tiberius, named Agrippina the Elder (a granddaughter of Augustus and the mother of Caligula) also died of starvation, in 33 (however, it is not clear if she voluntary starved herself to death or if she was forced to).

 BioMed Central | Full text | Environmental stress and reproduction in Drosophila melanogaster: starvation resistance, ...
Starvation resistant lines have been shown to have a relatively long development time [18,19], and most relevant to the present study, starvation selected-lines have been observed to be genetically correlated with relatively reduced early age fecundity [20].
Candidate genes associated with starvation resistance tend to be in developmental pathways responsible for cell fate [41].
However ovariole number and starvation resistance are not known to positively covary in natural populations; a shallow cline in starvation resistance among Australian populations [43] appears to be negatively correlated with an Australian cline in ovariole number [11].

 epowiki: Effects Of Semi Starvation
What makes the "starvation study" (as it is commonly known) so important is that many of the experiences observed in the volunteers are the same as those experienced by patients with eating disorders.
The fact that starvation perceptibly altered sexual urges and associated conflicts is of particular interest, since it has been hypothesized that this process is the driving force behind the dieting of many anorexia nervosa patients.
The profound effects of starvation also illustrate the tremendous adaptive capacity of the human body and the intense biological pressure on the organism to maintain a relatively consistent body weight.

The starvation deaths in Rajasthan are a replay of a similar tragic story that unfolded in poverty-stricken Kashipur in the eastern state of Orissa last year.
As the starvation deaths in Kashipur hit the news, the Orissa government claimed that those who died were victims not of starvation but of their tradition of consuming mango kernel and boiled grass even while grain is available.
The starvation deaths at Kashipur prompted the Indian Supreme Court to direct the government to "devise a scheme where no person goes hungry when the granaries are full and lots are being wasted due to non-availability of storage space".

 Metabolic effects of starvation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
The actual effect of administration of 100 to 150 g dextrose a day intravenously is a combination of (l) reduced requirements for gluconeogenesis from amino acids and glycerol, and (2) an increased endogenous insulin release which reduces lipolysis, increases protein synthesis, and increases requirements for gluconeogenesis.
Further starvation, up to 6 to 8 days, is associated with a marked depression of the ratio to as low as 0.4, strongly favoring catabolism.
Aldosterone: Uncomplicated starvation is associated with only small increases in aldosterone secretion, whereas the major fluid shifts of trauma may result in marked increases.

 READING ROOM: Mild starvation as a healing method: the fruit diet - Features news
While starvation is well known in its various forms — based solely on water, bouillons or vegetables — Dani believes in the practice of the so-called fruit healing.

If followed properly, a starvation diet can heal an impressive number of sicknesses: high/low blood pressure, constipation, obesity, migraine, high cholesterol level, gastritis, common cold; a wide range of additional illnesses are also curable as long as the healing procedures are repeated intensely.
