The three fundamental laws governing all forms, of life are nutrition (food), motion (exercise), and oxidation (common air). The most important of these ii food. Fresh air is easy to get, and breathing is automatic, and if the body is properly fed exercise will also be automatic; but feeding the human animal is guesswork; done at haphazard. He is guided purely by his taste. His taste is warped and perverted. He has forced into his body a thousand things that it did not need and could not use, that has changed hunger into appetite, that has; poisoned his blood and produced exhilaration, dethroned his' reason and enthroned pernicious habits. He has eaten other animals, quadrupeds, bipeds, insects, and all sorts of cold, creeping things. In other words, he has waited until these animals have collected a few food elements from very questionable sources and built up their bodies, and then he has attempted to preserve his own life by stealing his nutrition from other animals. He has secured food second hand, after it had been collected by and passed into the body of another; animal.
