AIL the body elements .can.-be; found in the vegetable world 'in their purest form. "It requires, therefore, but little knowledge to enable man to select food, from such articles as will supply all .these elements in approximately the right proportions; but to this important matter he gives practically no thought. Every housewife, especially every mother, should understand something about the chemistry", of: the, v body and its, needs,' and also understand about food chemistry, which -tells' how Ho supply' these needs.
