- Man is entitled by inheritance to live 200 years^ Science, therefore, can boast only when it has carried him beyond this period. The difference be"tween youth and age is, in fact, only a chemical difference. The difference between the stiff and flexible cartilage, the hard and soft artery, the normal and irritated nerve, the rich hemoglobin (red) and thin blood, the black and white hair, are only chemical differ- , ;They, represent deposits^things :: taken into the body which; in some way &hd; for some reason the body is unable to; cast out. If man had studied man, his construction and maintenance, and made of it a true science—if he had given as much thought to the human body and its preservation as he. has to other branches of science, these chemical differences would have been .known, their causes removed, and man would to-day be in possession of his birthright, which is a normal life period of 200 years; or if he had carried the science of physiological chemistry and food chemistry to the same degree of development that he has many other branches of science, no doubt he would be able to prolong his life far beyond the normal period.
