Canned Foods in Relation to Health

Nature volume 114, page 120 (26 July 1924) | Download Citation



THIS book consists of the author's “Milroy Lectures,” delivered in 1923, with some amplification. The canning industry is a very important one in the United States and South America, and in the overseas Dominions. Though the industry is small in Great Britain, large quantities of canned foods are imported and consumed here. Thus in 1921 some 22,500 tons of canned meat alone (and much larger quantities of salmon and fruit) were retained in Great Britain.
