Published by Eyre & Spottiswoode: London 1893 (Preface Date)

" Philip Edward Muskett (5 February 1857 - 25 August 1909) L.R.C.P., L.R.C.S was an Australian physician, health reformer and writer. He opposed excessive meat and tea consumption and recommended people to eat more fish, fruit and vegetables. Muskett is best known for his book The Art of Living in Australia, published in 1873. Muskett's dietary advice was for the Australian population to eat more fish, salads and vegetables whilst reducing their meat intake. The book condemned the food-habits of Australians, their meat-eating three times a day and excessive beer and tea consumption. He noted how the consumption of butcher's meat and tea was in enormous excess, and was paralleled nowhere else in the world and how deep-sea fisheries were not developed. Muskett wrote that "consumption of butcher's meat and of tea is enormously in excess of any common sense requirements" and an "injurious amount of meat" was eaten "to the exclusion of far more needed nourishment."
