The Foods that Strengthen and the Foods that Starve – Strength Magazine – October, 1923

Mineral starvation is responsible for more sickness than any other single cause. In fact, though the assertion may appear to be a bold one, even extravagant, it may be said that mineral starvation is responsible for more sickness than all other causes combined. Mineral starvation prepares the way for all the acute infections by weakening, breaking down and destroying the natural immunity of the body against disease and can thus be regarded as the most important contributory, if not actually the primary cause of all infections, except those of venereal origin.
