Proper Nutrition for Health and Morale
Vital Part of National Defense Effort
By Ethel Norton, B.S., M.A
Health Director, Central Y. W. C.A.,
The success of the defense effort
depends not only on increased pro
duction but also on improving in
dividual health and morale.
The average worker throughout
the country loses ten work days
each year because of illness. This
is an enormous economic loss to
industry as most of this time is
lost because" of common colds or
other ailments which can be pre
vented by following simple health
rules. ' '
Faulty nutrition, lack of daily
exercise and fresh air are respon
sible for many of these ills. The
Selective Service has brought to
light the high percentage of young
men with poor teeth arid other
physical defects due in great meas
ure to inadequate of faulty diet.
The Deputy Director of the Selec
tive Service System reported at the
National Nutrition Conference held
in May, 1941, that thirty-eight per
cent of the young men were found
to be unfit for general military
service. This means that just as
many young women in the same
age group are below par physically
and unfortunately the percentage
of physical disability increases in
direct ratio to age.
The United States has the high
est standard of living in the world
yet the great majority of the peo
ple are not getting the proper
foods. The. result is preventable
illness, towered morale and a low
level of community health. The
cost of foods has little or no rela
tion to their health-building prop
erties. It is a matter of choice and
preparation of foods, yet the aver
age diet is deficient in foods with
the correct amount of vitamins and
mtherats for health. It is a sad
commentary that many young men
have been introduced to a varied
diet in the army for the first time
in their lives though they may have
come1 from localities where vege
tables and fruits were cheap and
Every individual must have six"
essential vitamins daily and cer
tain minerals such as calcium, iron
and phosnhorus. These six vita
mins, A, Bi. B, C, D. and PP. and
the minerals, work hand-in-hand to
keep the body in health. The
modern way of insuring proper
nutrition is a supplementary ' diet
of vitamin and mineral concentrate

tablets taken regularly as a health
precaution and body builder. Vic
tims of serious nutrition deficien
cies should consult a physician, of
course, but the normal adult can
keep well and in health with a
daily diet which includes one pint
of milk, one egg in some form,
one serving of meat or cheese, two
or three servings of vegetables,,
two or three servings of fruits, one
serving of whole grain cereal,
fortified bread, butter, and six to
eight glasses of water and other
fluids. The supplementary vitamin
and mineral diet is by way of addi
tional health insurance.
Good posture and daily exercise
to keep the body in condition are
possible for every man and woman.
Men are learning the advantage of
daily exercise in the army. Women
can go to their local Y- W C. A.
and not only learn to do simple
exercises but also get a physical
check-up by Y W C. A. physicians.
They can learn how to use their
hodies properly in doing their
Tiousehoid rmJil..2. order to mini
mize fatigue and prevenf physical
defects caused by improper pos
ture. The Civilian Defense program
calls for good health, pro T nu
trition, participation in community
games and exercise. Let's all con

ventable illness in the interest of
.Paul, who is in a hospital there.
