Individuals coming to the medical service of The Lankenau Hospital with cardiac, nephritic, gastrointestinal, blood and other disorders, as well as diabetes and obesity, have been studied more and more in the nutritional section of the Metabolic Clinic. It is remarkable to note how many functional disturbances clear up when patients are placed on a sensible, restricted but adequate diet with the avoidance of coffee, tea, tobacco and alcohol.
