The Chemistry of Nutrition
Tannenbaum and Stillman
This little retro science book is all about food. This book starts with a discussion of how times have changed and that our ancestors were not as tall and that humans can eat anything, even insects.
Our authors break down a bit of history and science to instruct the reader on the basic chemicals. Not a bad book for 1962. Of course this is dated, and the scope of the book seems a bit much. The weird little illustrations makes me think the authors were aiming toward a middle school audience.
