Tomato In Bright's Disease

When Thomas Jefferson brought the tomato from France to America,
thinking that if it could be induced to grow bountifully it might make
good feed for hogs, he little dreamed of the benefit he was conferring
upon posterity. A constant diet of raw tomatoes and skim-milk is said to

to England, became a victim to that complaint, was restored to health by
two years of this regimen.
