I'm validating a book called Let's Have Healthy Children by Adelle Davis, an 
expert on nutrition back in the 50s and 60s.  I'm all done editing the book 
except for a 34-page chart at the back, that lists the nutritional content of 
hundreds of foods, specifically the calories, protein, carbohydrates, fiber, 
fat, saturated fat, linoleic acid, iron, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, 
sodium, vitamins A, B1, B2, niacin and C, of a typical serving of each food.  
The book is old, but I doubt that the nutritional content of food has changed 
since then. The recommendations of what to eat has certainly changed, so I'd 
take her advice on that subject with a grain of salt (so to speak).
My question is: is anyone interested in this chart?  If someone is, I'll fix it 
up, but if no one cares about it, I won't spend hours fixing something that 
will be unread.
Thanks for your input, Carrie
