preventing disease. These salts are absolutely necessary for life, and
though found in other foods such as meat, are particularly abundant in

fruit salads are to be recommended. Those of gouty or corpulent
tendencies will find these of especial use. By keeping the blood
alkaline they are a preventive of many diseases. Spinach, cabbage,
lettuce, and all the fruits offer a variety from which at each season
