Your body contains enough IRON to make a small nail –
Enough SALT to fill an ordinary shaker –
Enough SUGAR to fill a small bowl –
Enough LIME to whitewash a small chicken coop –
Enough PHOSPHORUS to make a dozen matches –
Enough FAT to fill a twelve-pound pail –
Enough ALBUMINOIDS to replace the whites of one hundred eggs.
