Health Foods ... Economic Security Scientists agree that the tropics is man's natural home. "In a climate of eternal spring, where snow and ice were unknown, man lived for thousands of years, and the tropical (fruit) forest furnished all the necessities of life in abundance". (Carque, p. 173) This fact constrains Science to assert that man's natural diet consists of laxative tropical fruits, For they contain specific elements of nutrition that insure bowel vigor and aperient action, which promote health and prolong life. But they must be eaten ripe from the tree; for when picked green for shipment North, as is the practice, they do not possess these vital qualities and elements. DISEASE- Eminent physiologists show the modern diet of constipating grains, cereals, legumes, tubers and meat clogs the life-channels and builds disease. They show this diet is unnatural, artificial and disease-producing. Facts and experience prove it. Highway to Health- Plant a grove of tropical fruits in South Florida that supplies Health Foods and Economic Security.

Sebring and the region south seem favorably for tropical fruits.
