with albumen and by the addition of oxygen
creates nerve fluid or the gray matter of the
brain. Of course, there is a trace of other
salts and other organic matter in nerve fluid,
but Potassium Phosphate is the chief factor
and has the power within itself to attract, by
its own law of affinity, all things needed to
manufacture the elixir of life."
Further on he says; "The beginning and end
of the matter is to supply the lacking principle,

Mind asks for a healthy brain upon which

Nature's way to rebuild Is by the use of
food which supplies the things required. Brain

Likewise if we would feed in a skillful nmn

what the brain is composed of and then select
