This deprivation of their natural food is sometimes complete, but more often it is only partial.

It is difficult to say whether this percentage of infants deprived of mothers milk is on the increase or not. Judging from the number of so-called Infant Foods on the market, the number of children who derive at least a part of their sustenance from this artificial source must be much greater than is commonly supposed. In many cases, no doubt, it is absolutely impossible for the child to obtain nourishment from the mother. Under such circumstances, of course resort must be had to some other food.

Whenever the food is other than that provided by nature, too much care cannot be exercised in selecting that which most resembles, in its chemical and physiological properties, that most suitable of all infant foods - mothers milk.The importance of the question of substitutes for mothers milk can hardly be overestimated. The mortality among infants is enormous. Until the present time, but few statistics have been taken with regard to the diet of infants who have died during the first year of their existence.

It has been stated that, of 800,000 deaths that annually occur in the United States, 500,000 of them are infants. This statement, however, is not based upon anything more substantial than a reasonable supposition. It is practically impossible, with the present state of the enforcement of the laws, to give, with accuracy, such statistics.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
