Dr Abbott on...
Hypertension, nephritis and the kidney of pregnancy, as well as eclampsia, may be largely prevented by the prohibition of meats, tea, and coffee, and very rigid restriction of protein generally, especially of acidifying foods. The free use of leafy vegetables and the very free use of fruits and fruit beverages before and during pregnancy, in the predisposed, has remarkable effects.
