Diet and Commonsense
This early work is a fascinating read for the health enthusiast or historian. Its 303 pages contain a wealth of information and anecdote on all aspects of a healthy diet, and chapters are interspersed with pertinent quotations from eminent figures. Contents include: Calories, Organic Mineral Salts, Vitamins, Meats of all Kinds, Sea and River Fishes, Eggs and Dairy Produce, Mushrooms, Seaweeds, Condiments, Vegetables and Pulses, Fruits, Wheat and Other Cereals, Sugar, Nuts, Honey, Vegetable Oils, Bread and Wine, Drinking Water, Non-alcoholic Drinks, Ales, Beers, Cider, Perry and Mineral Waters, Wines and Spirits, Children's Diet, and Diet in Specific Illnesses. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
