This edition contains minor changes of the original text and a chapter on developments in the last five years. This additional chapter contains discussions on the relationship of vitamin B to the appetite, the daily amount of milk to be included in the diet, and the influence of body type, gastro-intestinal physiology and endocrine gland secretions on the appetite. The author feels that the modern concept admits the influence of infected tonsils, adenoids and sinuses as a cause of poor appetite and that anemia is probably a potent cause of anorexia. The text contains numerous illustrative examples of the various types of anorexia commonly encountered. The book should prove of value not only to mothers but also to physicians, psychologists and nurses who may have to deal with anorexia in children.
