Excerpt from Food: Its Influence as a Factor in Disease and Health

Food. Per se, is, if technically classified, a book on the pathological, etiological, and therapeutical action of food on the body in health and in disease.

Average people, the same as average professional men (physicians eat in a haphazard way their lives are lived in a haphazard manner; and, what is worse, many professional men declare that they know nothing about diet; that, indeed, there is not anything to know about it; that people should eat what they want, when they want, all they want. And as often as they want. This sentiment is promulgated in the face of the great truths that have been discovered in stock-growing - in the improvements made in the lives of animals and plants.

Aside from injuries and the derangement sequen tial, disease comes from the labor incident to man's struggle for existence, and the wear and tear necessary to maintain a physiological balance.

Food is necessary for growth and the supply of waste, and, in the procuring and eating of food, man meets with abuses galore that injure his health, bringing on disease and premature death.

The subject of food is large, and in Food I have endeavored to give much general information regarding the relationship of diet to health and disease.
