DrT Wiley, in new series qFfood articles, written exclusively
for The Day Boole, says that prdper .dieting by the sick and the well, "
also, will aid in elimination of disease. '
Most people think, of the word
"dieting" as describing a condi
tion of eating in cases, of disease
or disturbances- of bodily func
tions. This of'cburse restricts
the use of the term rather nar
rowly. Dieting in fits broadest
sense means the whole'scheme of
nutrition.
While there is no-question of
the value of food imthe preven
tion and alleviation of' disease,
food does not cure disease nor do
drugs nor physicians cure'disease.
Disease is n,ever cured ;iis some
times overcome, palliated and
eliminated A proper diet will
do' much , towards aiding- in.
this desirable consummation,
but first ofll dieting Sneans good
nutrition, probably different to
some extent from" that which, hasto
been usuallyfollowed by the sub-
iect.
In disease as well as in health itI
is important to have an abun- o
dantJ supply of food which can be a
digested. In disturbances of;f
health, which are usually attendee
ed by .disturbances of digestion,
dieting becomes of supreme im-
portance. In this sense dieting
consists in finding out what nu- ri
itritious foods the subject can tol-rjt
terate In order ,. that he may hot
add starvation to his other ills ;
