Abstract

THE DEFENDANT maliciously, intending to defame the plaintiff and subject it to hatred, ridicule and contempt,... falsely, maliciously, willfully, wrongfully... published... a fake, wicked, malicious, defamatory and scandalous libel...." These harsh words with their interesting adjectives, originated by the Boston Nutrition Society, were delivered to me the first Monday in July, 1959. The basis for this libel suit was an answer I had prepared to a question received from the editorial staff of McCall's magazine, and which was to appear in the March, 1957, issue as part of a question and answer column. The complete question and my answer were as follows: "Q. I am enclosing a clipping from an 'open letter' from the Boston Nutrition Society that is really frightening: 'The enriched white bread fed to the American public is a national scandal. First of all, the wheat grown on poor soil and fertilized with water-soluble commercial fertilizer
