Tell me the diet of an individual and I will tell you the probable length of his days.” At a time when the concern of the day was immoderate drinking, J. Stenson Hooker, M.D. was one of the first popular thinkers in medicine to suggest that food should concern the state. In this short, classic treatise, he argues for ideas that we now think of as commonsense: that what we eat, and how much of it, are of utmost importance to our health. Quantity Available: 1.
