What Must I Do?

A nutrition guide from early 1950s focusing on raw foods, vegetable juices, etc.by staff at Nutrition Research, Canada

Printed in Canada, although the information often directly addresses Americans

Condition: Very Good. Found no marks except the name of the previous owner on the fly leaf. The very last page has separated from the hidden staple binding, however it remains quite solidly attached to the cover - only by inspection can this fault be seen. The pages are toned from age with little, if any, edge tanning. The cover has been creased from opening. There are some dark spots on the cover - perhaps from fingerprints. The silver gilt text on the cover is in good shape.

Copyright: 1950?. This book references a magazine article from January 2, 1950. Chapter 20, "Children's Diseases" begins by discussing treatment of poilio with a diet high in vitamin C without mention of the Salk vaccine. This would probably put the publication date before 1955.

Author: Nutrition Research, Canada

Publisher: Nutrition Research, Canada

Pages: 128 (pages 9 through 123 are numbered)

Cover: Soft

Size: 8-1/2 inches tall and 5-1/2 inches wide

The Introduction, pp. 9 - 10:

"What Must I Do?

This is a question people are asking themselves today. In almost every home you find sickness and suffering, and most people haven't the faintest idea that they, themselves, are causing their own misery.

Only by an application of the knowledge of food and its properties can we keep the body in perfect health. Knowledge, and the will to use that knowledge, are the perfect weapons against Disease. Nature does not excuse the careless, and ignorance is rewarded with disaster.

You can make yourself ill or well according to the food you consume, and millions of people are unconsciously committing suicide daily at their own tables.

Before a person can hope to select their diet intelligently, he must first learn something of the value of his food and what minerals and vitamins it contains.

The way to salvation from pain and suffering can only be reached by the efforts of the sufferer himself. However, Nature can work miracles if one only co-operates with her intelligently and givers her the materials to work with. In this way you cleanse the system of its toxic poisons and build up new health, beauty and youthfulness in Nature's way.

The theory of body building through nutritional elements is not to be interpreted as entering the field of medicine or as violating a doctor's prerogative. Our purpose is simply to improve vitality through proper nutrition.

If any dangerous or acute conditions exist or are suspected, we strongly advise consulting a diet-conscious physician.

In the words of Dr. Jonathan Foreman: "The basic training and creed of the Medical Profession is based upon the healing and the caring of the sick. It is not within their province nor is it their responsibility to keep people from getting sick. IT IS THEIR OWN INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY. The medical profession therefore works on effects rather than causes."

Charles Noyes Kinney, Emeritus Professor of Chemistry, Drake University, Des Moines, Iowa, in his book, "Nutrition", differentiating between Foods and Medicine or Drugs, states: "A food is a substance which when taken into the system furnishes required elements which enter into and become part of cell structure, or which aids in building up and maintaining cell life and activity. It must also provides elements required to carry out the by-products of cell building and waste products, and all the many vital life processes involved. A drug or medicine may stimulate or modify cell activity, but it furnishes no material for maintenance. The crack of a whip or the electric current may stimulate, but they do nothing to maintain or continue the action. Medicine therefore may modify some action, but it applies no material to sustain it.

The theory behind the value of raw vegetable juice is simply that they furnish the body with necessary materials for body functioning and repair - materials which are so often missing from the average diet. In this way, Nature is given an abundance of proper materials in an easily assimilable form, and is thus assisted in her efforts to return the body to normal functioning.

If you were raising animals, you would realize how important proper diet is, and you would put that knowledge into effect. While the diets suggested herewith have been selected with the utmost care, and while hundreds of letters have been received telling of the seemingly miraculous results attained through raw vegetable juices, we wish to make clearly understoodthat these diets are merely suggestive and no claim is made by us as to the curative properties of any particular juice or combination of juices.

As before stated, in any complicated condition, a diet-wise physician should be consulted. "
