Full text of "Diet in health and disease"


This is a digital copy of a book tha^ was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world^s books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for Ihe copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain, A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in Ihe public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to Ihe past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public doruain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
preveni abuse by commercial parlies, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Mcikt^ nofi-comwcrcial itsip of the- files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-com mere ial purposes. 

+ Refntin from aitlomtiieil querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a laige amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help, 

+ Maintain attribution The Google ''watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep ii legaf Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

While diot-li'^ts are &L^\iy prepared aecnnling to the niethcMl 
just outlined, il niust ahvay.s be remembtred tbat the digestU 
bilitv and :ib?^(>rbabJlity of fcxKl play a mof>t inijwrtant rOk-, and 
are not to be neglected in formulating tlie dietar}' ; for whlk- a 
(x^rtain food may eontaiu a great many more Oidoric^ tban an 
eqtial weight of another fo(Kl, yet Its relative indigoHti bilitv 
and nou-absorbability may render it fur lefi^ available ari an 
article of diet. For example, \vhile 4 ounces of sausage pn>- 
diire 510 calories^ 4 ounces itf chccf?e o"20, ami 4 ounces of 
be<.*f only 280, yet the beef is far mnre digestible than either 
the fsausage or cbe<\se, and thua more vahiable as an article uf 
food* As has l«*n aptly t^id, " We live not u|M"n what we 
eaij but upon what we digest.'* Thoretbre, a diet-list giving 
quantities c>f fiMxl principles or calories is useful onlv as it 
su^;ests general principles that may 1>o mcHlit^iHl t<» meet indi- 
viduid conditifms in health and in disease. 


Apart from the selection of a pro|ter diet, im|)ortant factors 
that es]»ecially affect the digestion are the lltllcwing: 1, The 
hourSf order, and frequencv of nu'ids, 2. Vnrietv in iliet, 
3. The appetite. 4. The tem|H'niture of f<M)d. ^. liest and 
exercise before and after me:ds. fl. Emotion. 

1. Order and Frequency of Meals Tt is usually 

customary to fix certain hniirs iiir the taking of meals; these

hours van" with the occui«ition of the individual. In lai^ 
cities, when^ the nrx^ii hour U taken up largely with active 
business pursuits, evening i,'^ f^lected a:^ the most oonvuDient 
hour for dinner. Sir Henry Thompson states that three gen- 
eral systems arv in use, according to which, two, three, or four 
nie:ils are taten daily. The first system, which consists of two 
Dieskls a day, is followed in France and other countries on the 
c«»Rtinent of Euro|K'. A substantial meal, omsisting of fisb or 
me:ii and other court's of sidid foods, is eaten about noon ; 
no f~Nid is taken before the no<in meal, except on arising, 
when a cup of c<»ffoe or choc^>late and a small quantity of 
bread and butler are taken. The second meal, which is dinner, 
is eaten between 6 and 7 nVhick in the evening. This meal 
is the Lirgi-st meal <>f the chn% and consists of soup, fish, meat, 
vegetables, salads, desst-rt, and black coffee. The second 
sy,<tcm, commonly in vi-^u* in Enghiud, omsists of four meals 
4l;uly. The ^rsx meal, or bn^kfasi, i^ taken at alkout 8 A. M,, 
and coiisi>is of ("oo^, ti'a, or iv>t!tH\ bread, butter, Ikicod, fish, 
or ej^ : ilinner is eait^n iK'tw^vn 1 and :*, and <X)nsi^ts of 
soup. meat, fish, vep^tables, and juiddiug: tea is taken at 
5 !', _M., and sup|>or is stTvtnl at S, and consists of meat, fish, 
vej!:etables, and s^cwo^l fruits. Dinner is taken in the evening 
by the wfll't<wloHajisi.'<, and a substantLil lunch is usually taken 
at n*«>ii. The tliini s\\<ttni. prutis^O in the United Slates, 
consists ill tiikini; thri'c nu^ils iLiily, In many towns it is ens-* 
lomary to dirjc at uixui ; in otliors, in tbo evening. The u^^al 
briakta^t, taken U'twi^en T and S a, m., ^'imsists of fruits, 
breakfast i\<A or ivri.'als. Ci-p., Uic^kn, or s;iU fish, tea, i-ocoa or

Tobacco and DigeBtion. — Tobacco frequently playg an 
>ii3portaDt r6le id luflueDcing the dige^tioD of food. It h a well- 
I^xowQ fact that the chewing of tobacco increases the salivary 
Secretion, frequently reduces the appetite, and increases the 
cnovements of the bowels. As a rule, it is better to smoke 
^fter meals than before, the irritating effect of tobacco l)ei»g 
XhoB lessened. In acute gaBtric disturbances tobacco should l>e 

interdicted entirely^ and in chronic forme the smoking should 

lie limited to a verj' few cigars a day. 

Tobacco acts aa an e:][citaDt to the nervous system, and ^liould 

be prohibited in all nervous diseases.

The chief carbohydrate of milk ia kcUMe^ or milk-sugar. 
Milk-sugar is not nearly so Bweet as ordinary sugar, and id 
less soluble in water. It reacts to Fehling's solution like 
glucose. In the presence of the lactic acid bacillus it is con- 
verted into lactic acid, wiiich causes the milk to turn sour. 
Lactose forms about ;!8 i>er cent, of the total solids. 

Milk contains about 0,7 j>er cent of salts. These salts exist 
chiefly in the form of phosphates^ chlorids, and sulphates. 
Potassium salts occur in larger qiiantitieji than do sodium salts. 
Calcium salts are very essential to young, growing animals, 
inasmuch as they play a verj- important imrt in the forniatiou 
of bone. The relative percentages of salts in the ash of human 
milk arc shown by the following table :

Variations in Milk. — ^Thero are wide variations in the com- 
position of the milk of different animals. ^Vhile human milk 
contains more sugar and less protein than eows^ nnlk^ the fuel- 
value is about the same. D€>g's milk seems to l>e the richest, 
whereas that which eomcs from the horse is exceedingly ]K)or, 
as may he seen from the fallowing table :

Cream. — When milk is allowed to stand for some hours, 
the globules of fet rise to the top, and, together with consider- 
able milk, are removed as cream. This product contains about 
18 per cent, of fat, and some protein and carbohydrates from 
the milk mixed with it. According to Letheby, as quoted 
from Yeo, the followiug table shows the average composition of 
cream :

Skimmed Milk, — The residue remaining after the removal 
of cream from onlinar}' milk is called skimmctl milk. The 
amount of fat has been greatly nHluoo<l by creaming, hut the 
Ijercentage of protein remains almost the same. It irt more 
ea^ly (ligestc<l than whole milk, inasmuch as the fat has been 
removed. The compi^sition of skimmc<l milk, according to

for the mother as well. A healthy child, if trained to do so, 
will sleep without rocking or coddling. Three things are, 
however, essential to secure success in this training ; a satisfied 
appetite, dry napkins, and a quiet, darkened room. The infant 
must not be nursed each time it cries. If it has colic^ the 
warm milk may soothe the child for a time, but later aggra- 
vates the trouble, which in many cases is due to overfeeding or 
to too frequent feeding. 

The following table, from Holt, may be used as a guide in 
breast-feeding :

In case of siokne^ and when the infant i.s feeble and U'low 
the average, espeoial rules are rt-quired, and directions >*hould 
be modified to 5uit each individual oase. A py*A gi^neral rule 
is to feed the child according to the yge to which the weiglit 
eorresiponda. The ebild'rf weight is the \ye^\ index of its nutri- 
tion. During the ftr^i four months it may [ie weighed twice a 
wetk J after that time once a wt-^^k is sufficient. The average 
minimum gaiu for an infant is four ounces a week. If the 
weight &lls below this for ^veml weeks r-*msecu lively, it is evi- 
dent that something is wrong. During illness, of course, there 
may he no gain or l^rss acoonlint: to the severity of the f»ndition. 

When the breast milk i?- insufficient for, <jr un^uite'l t^i the 
need» of, the infant, it l>ecomei fretful, e^^lic "ji-f.urs and the l>al*e

In order to obtain satisfactory rt^nU?^ die subjfi t of labora- 
tory feeding: must be thoron^^hly studic<l. Tiie authors have 
adopted Hcilt^s sclierae of having weekly n.'|W)rtH made ou all 
artificially fed infants and on manv *ithors. These n'|H)rts are 
supplied in blank form, in |>ads, tn the mntlior, who fills out 
one each week and send,'^ it in tin* plivsi<^i;ni. By this method 
part of the responsibility is placed on the mother, and tht physi- 
eian is kept informe<l as to the infant's comlition and nee<lle:>fi 
visits are thus obviate<l. The icilltAving ' is a S|>efimcn of such 
form :
