        I have somewhere the published research from the U of R which I could send to you....somewhere here in these messages I posted a link to the study.

Thanks for making a move.....let us know.... Joyce

                      I did contact Jacob Adams and he did share a great deal of information. The follow up study is not currently active but it was about a 40 plus year study.
