The author's didactic experience has demonstrated the advisability of presenting dietetics in connection with a study of nutritional disturbances: alimentary, metabolic, endocrine. These he takes up briefly but systematically, including dietetics for the infant as well as the adult, after a preliminary part on dietetics in general. A course, such as outlined in this book, is something much to be desired in the medical schools in this county, in most of which dietetics is not taught in a systematic manner. There is not even provision made for it in most of the medical curriculums. Perhaps, if a study of general dietetics could be made an essential part of the course on nutritional diseases, this defect might be remedied.
