Abstract

IT has been pointed out by Widdowson and Allington1 that the present restriction of citrus and other fruits in the diet of the middle classes has not been compensated for by an increase in the amount of vegetables eaten, therefore the vitamin C intake has been reduced to half that consumed by the same families in 1935.
