On That Date, No. 2

“We eat much more meat than is needed to supplement our vegetable food. Our meat is much fatter than would be necessary anyhow. The sugary and starchy foods of which we consume an excess make the fat still less necessary. . . . A reform must come, but it will come no faster than our farmers learn to . . . make more meat and leaner meat from less vegetable material, and consumers learn to buy and use meats and other foods of the kinds and in the proportions best suited to their actual needs.” — W. O. Atwater, “The Food-Supply of the Future,” Century 43, no. 1 (November 1891): 103.
