D1ET EXPERTS' BUNK- Some
professors of dietetics and it D.'s in
our health department are experi
menting on a squad of subjects for
two weeks to prove that a person can
live on 40e a day.
Which goes to show how silly and
ridiculous some of our educated peo
ple make v themselves at times.
This experiment, regardless of the
qutcome, ain't worth a pinoh of salt
tb thh public. For instance six per
sons can be placed on an absolute
fast for eight days and" at the end of
the -fast some of the persons will
show a gain in weight. But does this
prove to the public' that fasting is
practical for all? No! Neither does
40daniay scientific feeding.
There have been hundreds of
these feeding experiments conducted
by schools, colleges and government
experts, and all -they can tell us isSl
that one man can ao certain work oi
food "containing a certain amount
each of protein, fat and 'carbohyr
drafes, while another man can't, al
though the two men are similar in.
health and structure.
'- These learned dieticians and, phy
sicians also' tell us to eat slowly and
get "more nourishment from food.
They don't consider that the" differ
ent natures of people govern their
pace of eating, that it is as natural
for some people to eat fast as it Is for
the cqloi of their hair to be, brown
or.black or red. j
' Tonce heard a lecture by a famous
college athletic coach, a great judge
of young men, and he said while it is
injurious to eat "too fast," yet In a
period of observance covering 26
years Jie found that all our best
young men. were fast eaters and they
were better thinkess, better students
and better athletes than.the slow eat
ers, So, as Mr. Dooley Would say,
"the only good thihg about the ex
piriment is the little free boon?, the
byes and gyurte are gettin'." Jas.
