ALUM BAKING POWDERS IN
Report That r.tlitrni'n of Thrlr Harm
fiilnrp la Ovtit-M lioliiilue-
The conimitteo on manufactures ol
tho senato wore some time ago directed'
to Investigate tho food adulterations,
and accumulated a volume of testimony
upon thu subject from thu best inform
ed parties and highest ficientillc author
ities iu the country.
One of tho greatest sources of dnugcr
to our foods, thu conimitteo statu hi
their report, exists in alum baking
powders. The conimitteo found the
testimony, they say, overwhelmingly
condemnatory of the uso of alum iu
baking powdors, audrecniiimouded that
such use bo prohibited by law.
Senator .Mason, discussing in the .sou
ate tho report of the conimitteo and tin
sovoral hills Introduced to carry the
iccommcnilatluus of the committee In
to effect, said:
"When wo innilo this report we made
It based on tho evidence before us, aud
tho evidonco is simply overwhelming.
1 do not euro how big a lobby thore
may ho hero for the alum baking pow
der, 1 do not cure how many memorials
they publish, there is no place in the
human economy of human food for this
thing called alum. Thu overwhelming
evidence of the loading physician:) and
scientists of this country is that it is
absolutely unlit to go into human food,
and that in many cases if tho gentle
man will lead the evidonco, hoiiio of
tho physlclaus say they can traco cases
in their own practice theiu aiu dis
eases of the kidney duo to thu perpetual
use of alum iu their dally bread,
"When you mix a mineral poison, as
thoy all say that alum is, it is impossi
ble to mix it always to such a degree
that there will nut be a residuum loft
of alum, which pioducos alumina, and
which contributes largely to tho diseaiui
of the people iu this country.
"1 want tu give thu senate au tdoit
of the class of men wo havo called,
They aro the leading scientists from
every college of the United States that
wo could get hold of."
