Abstract
We have previously drawn attention (May, 1937) to recent advances in the science of nutrition, to the increasing applicability of such knowledge to man's needs, and particularly to the needs of the native of the tropics. We also referred to the interest taken in this subject by the Secretary of State for the Colonies. One of the fruits of this interest is the report on "Nutrition in the Colonial Empire" which has been prepared by a Committee of the Economic Advisory Council, and recently issued by the Colonial Office. 1 his report summarizes information supplied by the forty-eight British Colonial Governments, discusses the deficiencies and potentialities of colonial diets, and lays down general principles for both present and future action and investigation. It is of great interest and importance not only to administrators but to all those who have any concern in the growing of food, its marketing, and its sale or issue to the African.
