KIRKUS REVIEW

A sober yet interesting survey of the science of nutrition from early times on, a survey bearing evidence of considerable research, accompanied by graphs, charts, etc. The relationship between nutrition and health which was to receive considerable stress after the last war, choice of foods, fads and prejudices which govern them; the consequences of misfeeding -- or ""hidden hunger"" -- and the deficiency diseases which result; food values, calories, vitamins, minerals; the processing and preparation of foods -- and the spoilage which occurs too often; food as it is being used to feed the army, etc., etc. There is little new material here, but it is a sound, semi-scientific review.
