Certain American newspapers1 have recently featured special foreign correspondence alleging that French physicians, "following the well known practice at Vichy, are prescribing more and more the moderate drinking of wine instead of milk for patients suffering from gastric or intestinal troubles." It is further reported that "one of the eminent physicians who are leading the antimilk campaign in favor of wine" regards it as a duty to inform the public about the physiologic advantages of wine. These statements, which have been widely circulated at a moment when the repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment is being discussed in every home, are already promoting numerous inquiries to physicians. It seems peculiarly unfortunate that the problem should be raised in this country at a period when much effort continues to be expended in the attempts to promote a more liberal use of what has been termed "our most nearly perfect food," milk.
