This means the curtailment of sweet foods, unless every gram of sugar is found in such good company as milk, nuts, yeast and wheat germ. Dr. McCay pointed out that the health of an aging individual may be salvaged if he eats well and properly during the rest of his life—after forty or later. Dr. McCay has discovered the great body-building value of the addition of wheat germ to foods during his research work. Importance of bread in mall's diet was stressed Tuesday evening by George L.
