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

be a certain cure for Bright's disease. Gen. Schenck, who, when Minister

to England, became a victim to that complaint, was restored to health by

two years of this regimen.
