But do you realize that the leading manufacturers of food now seek tiie advice and approval of the leading nutritional authorities in the country, relative to he claims they make for their products in their advertising? In other words, food advertisements are reliable sources of information regarding diet. They arc" based upon the results of the latest approved 'scientific discoveries about vitamins, minerals and roue'hap'e in relation to vigorous bodies, clear complexions sound teeth and properly regulated systems. So read these advertisements carefully Consult your doctor about them. Very often the advertiser invites you to do this because he has asked authorities, whom your doctor respects, about those advertisements first.
