$110.00 (SRP)

Product Description

Within twenty years a new science of dietetics has been developed. As the result of the patient labors of many men, numerous mysteries have been cleared up, many hoary-headed theories have been exploded, and a great flood of light has been thrown upon one of the most important questions related to human existence.
It is now possible to say with a considerable degree of certainty how much food is needed daily by a man, woman or child at rest or at work, and to indicate what particular foodstuffs are best suited to meet any dietetic need which may be indicated in any condition of health or disease. It is also possible to state with reference to every common foodstuff what is its value as a source of energy and what its special dietary properties and characteristics.
