Priced from-- Character of Foods Explained Dr. Tidwell Tells Work of Vai-ious Kinds of Vitamins. By Harold F. Tidwell, M. D. Vitamin is a term which has come into common usage to designate a substance contained in certain natural foods. During the past few years, the American public has been bombarded w i t h advertisements, both in written articles and radio broadcasts, concerning the value 'and necessity of vitamins in the diet. Some of the claims arc rather fantastic and extravagant. Though the chemical character of vitamins has not been determined, the various foods that contain them have been identified. These accessory food substances or vitamins rank in importance with fats, proteins, carbohydrates, mineral salts and water to provide normal growth and development of the child. The dietary need for vitamins was first brought to the attention of scientists ' by reports of ill effects resulting from lack of fresh foods in the diets of sailors. After experimentation, these conditions were corrected when certain additions were to the diet At the present time, there are six vitamins known, and it is likely that in years to come others may be added to the list.

It is thought that vitamin A-has some protective influence over rickets. The chief sources of this vitamin are milk, cream, cheese, egg yolk, livers of animals whose diet has been such that would provide a storage of vitamin A, cod liver oil, halibut liver oil and the green and yellow vegetables. This vitamin does not exist in the vegetable fats. Vitamin B in Many Foods. The importance of. vitamin B, or anti-neurotic vitamin, was 'first noted . when many cases of a nerve disease called beriberi occurred in the Japanese navy. The diet of the sailors consisted almost entirely ot polished rice. When barley was substituted for the rice, the disease disappeared. Experimenters found that a similar condition could be produced in fowls by feeding polished rice and was readily cured when the potisbings were fed to the (Turn In I'aec 10.
