Never before has the relationship of food to the control of health been so strongly appreciated as it is today. Many human studies have demonstrated, the importance of certain nutrients in the maintenance of health, general ^/ell being, resistance to Infection, more rapid recovery from illness, and better growth in pupils. As Sherman (29) said:
The benefit which re may clearly and confidentially anticipate is much more than merely biological. It relates not only to health but through health to social evaluation and to even higher levels of intellectual and spiritual achievement by the individual who will do so to develop their innate capacities.
If the right food is not eaten, the man, the woman, or the child will not have the energy or vigor to carry on a full day of activity without feeling tired and exhausted. In the program of eating, If wrong food Is continued long enough, deficiency symptoms may lead to susceptibility to respiratory disease, constant fatigue, inability to sleep, Inability to see in the dark, horny or rough skin, constipation, frequent headaches, and many other conditions.
