An Adequate Diet (Classic Reprint)

Percy Goldthwait Stiles


Excerpt from An Adequate Diet

The past few years have been a period of great and fruitful activity for the biological chemist. When one surveys the results that have been amassed, one feels that the requisites of diet are so numerous as to make failure in nutrition altogether more probable than success; it seems scarcely possible that all the known demands shall be satisfied. But as a corrective upon this impression, we have before us the fact that the human race, without scientific guidance, has maintained through the ages a fair measure of health and power. In view of this one may incline to think that scientific discoveries in the field of dietetics are academic rather than practical.
