Physicians interested in the newer developments in methods of assessing the nutritional status of patients will find the present volume most useful, because it contains material described in no other single volume. The present little book contains the papers presented in the section on public health at the sixteenth annual conference of the Milbank Memorial Fund. A. Graeme Mitchell discusses the medical aspects of problems of nutrition. The late T. Wingate Todd summarizes his work on the use of roentgenology in assessing the nutritional state and in detecting certain deficiency diseases. There is an article on dark adaptation and the diagnosis of avitaminosis A by Selig Hecht, and there is another by Jacob B. Feldman on the use of the photometer in detecting latent avitaminosis A. Soma Weiss discusses the application of electrocardiography in the detection of avitaminosis B1; S. Z. Levine and E. Marples report on color tests
