"For centuries, farmers have reduced protein intake, eliminated most of the fat, and shoveled in cereals to fatten animals for market. Unfortunately, physicians seldom go to the farm for medical information or we might long ago have had the answer to obesity. The tall corn of Iowa and pork production go hand in hand. The eating habits and metabolism of human and hog are so similar that they could well be embarrassing to the hog."
