by Dr. Culver S. Ladd
Pure Food Crusader Edwin Fremont Ladd, Chemist, 1859-1925: The Pure Food Crusade for Sanitation and Health of the Nation and Its People traces the role of a leading figure in the movement to protect and regulate America’s food supply.
The quality and health problems that arose in the late nineteenth century have emerged once again with the threat of Mad Cow Disease and other contaminates, yet the laws enacted as a result of Chemist Ladd’s work – if properly administered and, most importantly, enforced – could have prevented this. This historical work serves as a reminder that all aspects of the farming and food industry must be approached with human life as the first concern.
Pure Food Crusader Edwin Fremont Ladd, Chemist, 1859-1925: The Pure Food Crusade for Sanitation and Health of the Nation and Its People offers the reader insight to the far-reaching effects of one man’s determined and conscientious work.
