"For the rapid increase in
knowledge it becomes more and more apparent that the science of
nutrition is the foundation of a more rational medicine. It is to be
hoped that on future occasions the work of this section will not be
limited to physiological, biochemical, pathological, and medical
aspects of the subject, but that it will include those that are
veterinary and agricultural."
