Food Conservation by Reduction of Rations


    IT is perhaps remarkable that, with all the current discussion regarding food conservation, so little emphasis has been laid upon the possibility. of conserving food by reducing the diet. When one recalls the agitation of enthusiasts for reduced diets during the past thirty years, and recognises the fact that all special pet theories can at this psychological moment obtain a better hearing than at any previous time, it is surprising that the advocates of reduced diet have made so little progress, and, indeed, have apparently ceased their propaganda.
