Description

Excerpt from Food and Its Adulterations: Comprising the Reports of the Analytical Sanitary Commission of "the Lancet" For the Years 1851 to 1854 Inclusive, Revised and Extended

Sufficient will be found recorded in the pages of this work to show that the subject of the Adulteration of Articles of Food and Drink is one of extreme and even of national importance. Considered in relation to the various substances employed in Medicine, it assumes, if possible, a still higher and graver interest.

The magnitude and importance of this question have been, to some extent at least, already acknowledged, as shown by the publication, first of Accum's Treatise, and subsequently by the works of Mitchell, Normandy, Chevalier, and MM. Jules Garnier and Hare], as well as by the several enactments which have been passed from time to time and in different countries for the purpose of suppressing adulteration. Hitherto, however, the subject has never received that amount of attention which, for a variety of reasons, it so strongly demands. This has arisen partly from the fact that the extent of the evil has only recently been made fully known, and this chie?y through the investigations recorded in the present work. Now that the magnitude of the mischief has been demonstrated, and the methods by which the several adulterations practised may be discovered with ease and certainty pointed out, we may, it is to be hoped, expect that but a very short period will be permitted to elapse before the subject will be duly considered and discussed, with a view to some effective legislation.
