Polar Journeys: The Role of Food & Nutrition in Early Exploration
Robert E. Feeney (au). Polar explorers not only traveled metaphorically on their stomachs, they lived & died by the quantity of their food & especially the quality of their nutrition. Relates the history of polar exploration to the history of the science of nutrition, showing, for example, how advances in food preservation helped make possible human survival on the expeditions. Covers the problems caused by too scant a supply of vitamins -- such as the role of diminished vit. C in scurvy -- & of too much of a good thing, in the case of hyper-vitaminosis from unknowingly overdosing on vit. A. Discusses the Eskimo knowledge of foodstuffs. Takes the science of nutrition as it relates to the role of diet in space exploration. Extensive maps, tables, & other materials.
