What editors should eat, according to Scientific American, 1871
"It is well known that certain kinds of food are peculiarly fitted for keeping the brain in a state of healthy activity. Many literary men here and in Europe permit themselves coffee, tea, and condiments in moderation, and for the rest confine themselves almost entirely to fish, fruit, vegetables, milk, and various kinds of farinaceous food, Graham bread and oat meal taking the lead. These articles have, by repeated experiments, been found to be the best for brain workers." — Scientific American magazine, in a short article titled "What an Editor Should Eat," 1871.
