Excerpt from The Chemistry of Foods and Nutrition: The Composition of Our Bodies and Our Food

When we know what are the kinds and amounts of nutritive substances our bodies need and our food-materials contain, then and not till then shall we be able to adjust our diet to the demands of health and purse.

The ways in which the body makes use of its food are found experiments made with living animals, with pigeons, geese, rab bits, dogs, sheep, goats, oxen, horses and many others, including men. The experimenting of the last few years, particularly, has been very ex tensive, and has brought extremely important results. To give a brief account of some of these researches and their principal results as applied to the nutrition of man is the object of this article. Will the reader first permit a few technical statements which seem necessary by way of introduction?
