This paper is a report of six cases of pernicious anemia, four cases of secondary anemia, one case of atypical secondary anemia, and one case of Hodgkin's Disease treated by a diet rich in liver, after the method of Minot and Murphy (1).
Whipple and Robbins (2) have said: "Any person who works with standard anemia dogs, and observes the ease with which hemoglobin regeneration can be controlled by diet factors, comes to believe that many types of human anemia may be treated to advantage by diet control, rather than by other methods."
