“YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT”
“You are what you eat,” runs the old adage. But today, Dr. Wood adds, you are sometimes sick because of what you have not eaten over a period of time.
With impartiality, with the logic of science, and in the straight talk of an eminent physician who has been treating men, women and children for over 30 years, Dr. Wood discusses the intimate relationship between nutrition and health, and freedom from various types of disease.
One look at the Table of Contents of CALORIES, VITAMINS AND COMMON SENSE will explain why people all over the United States are calling it one of the most important guides ever published for the health and happiness of you and your family.
There is a great deal of interest on the part of the public in the subject of nutrition. This is evidenced by the fact that in recent years two books by two physicians sold millions of copies and remained near the top of the non-fiction best seller list for many months. They both gave the public what it wanted. The first offered a cheap, simple, easy-to-obtain remedy for almost every human ill and was able to convince the reader that apple cider vinegar and honey was just what he needed. Since the beginning of time mankind has searched and hoped for panaceas—and we probably always will. The second book discussed only one problem—overweight. Its success was due to the fact that the author claimed he had himself lost sixty-five pounds in eight months, which he doubtless had, and promised those poor souls who had struggled with low-calorie diets for years that at last there was a way to lose fat while eating as much as one wished.
This book makes no such promises or claims. It is written in the hope of clearing up some of the confusion that exists because of the opposition to all food supplements on the part of most of the medical profession and the American Medical Association and the majority of the syndicated medical “experts” who repeat the antiquated and tiresome phrase, “All that is necessary is to eat a well-balanced diet.” There is overwhelming evidence that Americans are not the best fed people on earth. Much of our high rate of disease and disability in this country is the result of improper diet, processed and devitalized foods, additives and chemicals, cooking methods, etc. Lack of exercise, smoking, consumption of too much hard and soft beverages, tensions and insufficient rest all contribute their share, so that today there is actually a lesser expectancy of life for Americans over sixty years of age than there was one hundred years ago.
To the old adage, “You are what you eat,” we might add you also are often sick because of what you have not eaten over a period of time. As unemotionally and as scientifically as possible, it is the purpose of this book to discuss the intimate relationship between nutrition and health and freedom from various types of disease.”
