Abstract: Healthy boys and girls show marked differences in their need for or use of oxygen, depending upon their body builds. Slender children use more oxygen per kilogram body weight per minute than broad built ones when matched for age and sex. This raises the question of biochemical individuality with body build as the selective factor.
