Science and Nutrition


    THE usefulness of this book, and its success, are sufficiently well attested by the fact that it has now run into its third edition. The scope is well indicated by Sir Jack Drummond, who in the preface to the first edition published in 1938 wrote that it should be read “not only by the intelligent ‘man-in -the-street', whom for no very clear reason one assumes to be a layman, but also by the medical profession, until quite recently lamentably behindhand in recognizing the significance of experimental dietary studies, and perhaps even by the politicians who are at the moment very timorously testing the strength of ‘nutrition' as a party plank”.
