Waste of Food
John Buspic of Sunbury, Pa., writes:
-Dr. King's New Ufa Pills are the best
pills for constipation." :3c All drug
Apprehensive over food (shortage, the London press is advising the English
people to save and utilize ever)' article of food value, including the bran coating
of grain. ' '
Why? The outer coat of grain holds the previous mineral elements which
mean so much in vital building and up-keep of body, brain and nerves And yet
the modern miller throws out about four-fifths of these priceless food elements just
to make the flour look white and pretty!
Isn't it astonishing that it took war to
wake people up to such a fearful waste!
Nearly twenty years ago the cryiug need of u food which would fill the lack
caused by deimneralized white flour products led tothe making of
a wonderfully nourishing and appetizing food containing all the nutriment of
wheat aud barley, including the vital miueral elements, jubt as nature designed
them for our use.
