Some years ago a great outcry was raised over Professor At
Waters discovery that alcohol hi small quantities was oxidized in
the human system and produced heat and was therefore a food
After a long and acrimonious discussion in which the professor
was called a number of hard atones it dawned upon his detractors
4 that this scientific fact did not in any way deny the evils of intem
perance or oppose their advocacy of total abstinence Jt was in
deed merely a scientific truth with no moral bearing one way or
the other A somewhat similar report has just been made public
by a special government comission in England in which a good
word is uttered for the nutritive value of beer The general idea
that beer is primarily an alcoholic drink is opposed in this report
which holds that when well and properly made it is a beverage
4 containing a very small amount of alcohol and a relatively large
amount of nutritive material Says the Hospital London May a
in an editorial about the report
t
It is time that the erroneous view that beer has no nutritive
value in itself but merely consists of a beverage upon which a cer
tain portion of the community intoxicates itself should be exposed I
and discredited The results of our commission show that beer is
r par excellence the nutritive alcoholic beverage All beverages be
caues they contain alcohol should not be regarded in the same
light The spirit nipper is committing quite a different act from
the beer drinker5 in fact pQcr ji > much farther cmoed from the
pointy view of its alcohol content from some wines and all spirits
C than it is from ginger beer
When a man drinks good beer he drinks and cats at the same
time just as when he eaU a bowl of soup The terms I cat and
drink arc curiously but inconsistently used ns connoting the dif
ference between what is tner quenching our thirst and what is
actually consuming nourishment Our commissioners point out a
man might more properly be said to eat beer than to cat certain
kinds of soup or indeed watermelon Their report will enable
members of the medical profession and the public to understand
clearly what constitutes good beer and where and how they may
obtain it Beer drinkers the number of whom we hope will increase
considerably as the result of the researches of our commissioners
are now in a position to protect themselves from bad beers and we
hold the view that it would be infinitely better for the wellbeing of
the people of these islands as a whole if they wore to select beer as
their habitual drink rather than wines or spirits Climatic con
dition have a good deal to do with the dietetic value of substances
+ used for allaying thirst Our commissioners properly drive home
that when a man drinks beer or stout habitually he is not only
drinking but eating a fact which has not been sufficiently cog
nized in recent years These beverages contain all the elements of
a typical diet with the exception of fat and in a proportion approxi
mately physiological Our commissioners remind ns that if the
worth of a food is measured by its calorimetric value the fact is
that a glass of good ale is approximately as nourishing as q glass of
milk and that a quart of good beer is nearly equivalent to a quar
r ter of a pound of beef
II Another important aspect of beer is its hypnotic action Beer
is one of the most harmless hypnatifts we possess and is often far
more efficacious in treatment of insomnia than drugs Part of their
action IR due our commissioners remind us to the hypnotic princi
ple contained in hops and the more heavily these beverages arc
I hopped the more marked is their hypnotic action 0 An
other point in favor of beer as a beverage is that the like
lihood of its containing pathogenic organisms is too extremely re I
mote This gives tlikcteamal coffee a great advantage over
milk for they are all prepared under conditions which render pol
lution by infective bacteria extremely improbable
These remarks must not be niisconstrnod W > arc quite alive
as our commissioner arc to the tremendous harm done by the abuse
of alcohol and the good done by sympathizing with temperance At
t I k11Y the same time with the philanthropists desire to improve mankind
we have the scientists regard for facts Upon untruth no enduring
t fabric however philanthropic its motive can ever be securely built
The fact is that good properly ldCbelIIn beverage containing
small amount of alcohol and a relatively large amount of nutritive
a very
r tritive material It is too often forgotten that beverages like gin
t irer beer and kumiss contain slightly more than one per cent of alco
hol while there are beers on the market containing only two or
three per cent of alcohol Our commissioners give so interesting
