Default Emmet Densmore, MD - Another LC Historical Figure

From Marion Holman via Twitter

1/6 “The profound and primal cause of obesity will one day be recognizsed to be the use of cereal and starch foods.” ― Emmet Densmore, MD (Born 1837) Densmore promoted a meat and fruit diet, which he believed was the natural food of primal man.

2/6 Densmore opposed the consumption of bread, cereal, pulses and vegetables. He believed that all starch foods were not beneficial. Densmore argued that cereals were "unnatural and disease-inducing foods" His recommended diet consisted of meat, fruit, nuts, fish, eggs and milk

3/6 . He believed that the natural life of man should be 120 years. He opposed the use of all drugs and believed that dietetic and natural hygienic measures could cure disease. He advocated fasting as a treatment for illness.

4/6 Densmore authored the book 'The Natural Food of Man'. A review in the Edinburgh Medical Journal, noted that Densmore's belief that carbohydrate foods are injurious to health is not supported

5/6 by physiology and "in demolishing a vegetarian fad, it seems to us Dr Densmore is only constructing another fad of his own”

James Burn described his diet as "anti-vegetarian quackery"

All sounds so familiar decades on !
