Daisie Adelle Davis

American Author and a Pioneer in Nutrition and Preservation of Health advocating whole unprocessed foods and dietary supplements, criticized food additives

"Nutrition is a young subject; it has been kicked around like a puppy that cannot take care of itself. food faddists and crackpots have kicked it pretty cruelly... They seem to believe that unless food tastes like Socratic hemlock, it cannot build health. Frankly, I often wonder what such persons plan to do with good health in case they acquire it."

"Thousands upon thousands of persons have studied disease. Almost no one has studied health."
