Nutrition
NUTRITION [Latin: nutrx, nurse] Aulus Cornelius Celsus (25 BC–AD 50) wrote on the role of food in maintaining health. The value of lemon juice in protecting against scurvy was pointed out by the naval surgeon John Woodall(1556–1643) in 1611. A metabolic treatise on food in relation to body weight and excretion was written by Sanctorio Sanctorius (1561–1636) in 1614. Controlled trials with lime against scurvy was performed by James Lind(1716–1794), an British naval surgeon in 1747. Frederick Accum (1769–1838), a German chemist from Buckeburg raised the issue of adulteration of food in 1820 inTreatise on Adulteration of Food and Culinary Poisons. He also wrote Culinary Chemistry , on the scientific principles of cooking. Accessory food factors, vitamins, was propounded by Sir Frederick Gowland Hopkins(1861–1947) in 1906. The first of these, to prevented beriberi, was discovered by Polish-American biochemist Casimir Funk (1884–1967) in 1911. Henry Russell Chittenden (1856–1943), an American physiologist from New Haven, Connecticut founded physiological chemistry and nutrition in America. He wrote Physiological Economy in Nutrition (1905), and Nutrition of Man (1907). The role of amino acids was studied by William Cumming Rose (1887–1984), an American biochemist from Greenville, South Carolina. He discovered threonine (1936), and nine essential amino acids, including methionine (1937), and valine (1939). Severe protein malnutrition in children, ‘kwashikor’, was described by British pediatrician, Cicely Williams (1893–1992) in 1934. Poor nutrition is still the major cause of death in the world.
