Benjamin Harrow

Saturday, January 31, 1942

This episode is from the WNYC archives. It may contain language which is no longer politically or socially appropriate.

WNYC announcer introduces program, which he calls the first in the series, and Harrow, a professor of Chemistry at City College, who talks about synthetic vitamins.

Relationship between vitamins and certain diseases. Reproducing in the lab what natural produces. Not an exact duplication. Scurvy. Nutrition. Vitamins will never be a substitute for food. Specific names and uses of vitamins. Poor health is particularly dangerous in wartime.

WNYC announcer concludes program.

Benjamin Harrow actually says that synthetic vitamins are the same as the ones naturally found in food -- it might be good to change this in the description.
