Science and Invention (08:05) September 1920

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"Here is indeed a unique remedy to combat the high cost of living. To replace meats and other victuals which are at present almost out of reach, by means of the electric fluid--which by the way is a menu worthy of Hapagon--is the method very seriously proposed to us by Professor Bergonie, of the Bordeaux Faculty of Sciences. This scientist has demonstrated, in effect, that it is possible to partially sustain the human body by means of electricity served in the form of low as well as high frequency currents."
This is the September 1920 issue of Science and Invention, Vol. 8, No. 5, Whole No. 89. The feature story is “Electrical ‘Meals’.” Also included is “The Airplane of the Future” by Hugo Gernsback, short fiction, Collision of the Earth with Heavenly Bodies, and more.
