A Primer of Dietetics
This booklet has been written to present the main facts of dietetics in a simple form. The intention is that it may be serviceable in schools and colleges for courses of instruction in Domestic Science. As technical terms have been avoided as far as possible, and as a knowledge of chemistry and physics has not been presupposed, a still wider public, it is hoped, may learn from it something of the scientific basis of human nourishment.
