11:40 A. M. - Diet and health - Dr. Shirley W. Wynne, Health Commissioner.

Tuesday, December 01, 1931

Dr. Shirley Wynne, City of New York Health Commissioner speaks about the link between diet and health: “...I’m speaking of diet at this time because of the necessity of economizing during this winter and because of the importance that in practicing that economy, we do not sacrifice any of the important food elements that we need in order to protect and preserve health.” Doctor recommends eating seasonally and has simple dietary advice for pregnant women and those with specific dietary and weight goals.

Poor sound at start.
