Abstract:Urinary catecholamine excretion rates, previously shown to be related to lifestyles and environmental influences, were investigated in three traditional-living populations and in an English population. Significant inter-population differences in excretion rates and in creatinine-related excretion were observed. These included high daytime levels of adrenaline output in the traditional groups relative to the English group. Methodological problems are discussed.
