dc.description.abstractThe problem of leucocytosis is an interesting and important one. Its great significance in pathological conditions renders the knowledge of the variations of the white blood cells under normal physiological conditions necessary, for without this knowledge our interpretation of the result of a leucocyte count does not rest on a sound basis and may be erroneous. Although some aspects of physiological increase in the number of white cells have been studied and settled, there seems to be much less definite agreement regarding the effect of food on the number of leucocytes in the peripheral blood of man. The literature bearing on the subject is enormous, and the results recorded are often contradictory in one or more points. When such a state of confusion exists, one is naturally at a loss as to what to believe. To secure peace of mind, and to add one more evidence, either in favour of or against one or the other theory, more observations do not seem to be altogether; uncalled for.en
