As the back cover says, this is an epic study in the history of health maintenence that can be personally applied.

The book is excellent basis for understanding the antecedents to the current writers in nutrition and health. In his day (1939) the Dentist-author was ahead of his time and put forth his many conclusions on causes and protection against human degeneration. He compares the status of American health against that of other nations (especially in less developed areas) and presents, for his day, forward looking recommendations for maintaining health. For those who are not put off by the many photographs of people around the world showing the health of their teeth, the book is an interesting valuable read for those who want support for health views.
