From a 1909 farmer's diary,...
Health Hints (for robust, strong-minded people)
,... Temperate Habits
Never indulge in spirituous or malt liquors, or tea or coffee, or tobacco, or hog products of any kind. (even though they farmed hog, because there was the current price per pound).
With proper substitutes, it were better to cut out flesh meats altogether.
Have regular meals of wholesome, nutritious, well prepared and well cooked foods.
Eat only when hungry and only enough to satisfy hunger. Masticate thoroughly.
(and it goes on)
Huh,... how did we ever get so dumb?
