Addition Of Vitamins To Food
Published 1975 · Biology
Attention has already been drawn to the changing pattern of our dietary habits over the past ten to twenty-five years, resulting from the increase in urban life and the habit of married women undertaking other jobs in addition to their housework. In consequence of these changed dietary habits the vitamin content of food as actually consumed has fallen markedly from the days when fresh food was taken and prepared straight from the garden. Details of the causes and extent of these losses are given on pages 176 to 186.
