section 47


Gaddesden says milk is not good for all old people, but only for those who can sleep and digest it well, and who do not feel any pain in the sides,226 especially the right side; whose veins are wide, and who do not suffer from sour eructations or flatulence after it. Give sweet-tasting milk to them, from an animal pastured in a good meadow.227
