NUTRITION -- HEMP SEED AS NUTRITIOUS MEDICINE
Today we have a very clear subdivide between dietetics (proper food & nutrition) and the medical profession. But this was not always the case, at one time the two subjects (sort of) blurred into one another. With foods touting their medical value and vice-versa.
But as stated elsewhere in this book: this museum is made up solely of antique collectors (not medical trained professionals) and as such we should avoid medical subjects altogether and let the dietitians worry about pellagra, fatty acids, and vitamins etc., on their own. Here for our purposes it is enough to say that people back then were (on the whole), “simply too thin as well as undernourished,” as opposeed to today’s situation. As Ayn Ryan once wrote:
“In Western Europe, in the pre-Industrial Middle Ages, man’s life expectancy was 30 years.”Which is why Hemp Seed food (chucked full of nutritional value) played such an important part in Western medical history. The next section (while boring) shows just how important /common Hemp seed food was.
AS PER THE U.S. PATENT OFFICE:
[Here we limit ourselves to three examples because of the boring nature of these trade marks. For those of you interested, the U.S. Patent office has a good semi-good search engine on their website and Google has an even better search engine for trade marks on theirs.

We’ll stop here at three examples, after all how many times can one look at very similar and very boring trademark applications? --- The sole point being made here is that Hemp Seeds are chucked full of nutritional value. And in a time when nutrition and medicine were so heavily interlocked together; This was no small thing.
