Abstract

The initial indications that food components may be linked to health are described in the writings of ancient Greek philosophers in the fourth and fth centuries BC. An Egyptian medical text, the Papyrus Ebers (written about 1550-1570 BC) contains references that described liver as a potential treatment to improve vision including night blindness. In China, descriptions related to the husbandry and nutritional care of horses also occurred at about this time (Lusk, 1922).
