During this stimulating e-book, Goldsmith argues that biology has very much to assert that are meant to be of curiosity to social scientists, historians, philosophers, and humanists commonly. He believes that any one learning the social habit of people needs to think about either proximate cause--the body structure, biochemistry, and social mechanisms of behavior--and final cause--how the habit got here to exist in evolutionary time.

Compared with threshold concentrations of sucrose (typically 2–3%), the potency of alitame increases to about 2900 times that of sucrose. This phenomenon is typical of high-potency sweeteners. Use of higher concentrations of alitame allows preparation of solutions with a sweetness intensity equivalent to sucrose solutions of 40% or greater. The sweetness of alitame is of a high quality, sucroselike, without accompanying bitter or metallic notes often typical of high-potency sweeteners. The sweetness of alitame develops rapidly in the mouth and lingers slightly, in a manner similar to that of aspartame.

4 calories per gram is clearly insignificant at the use levels in the diet. IX. SAFETY Alitame has been evaluated in the extensive series of studies designed to establish its safety as a sweetener in the human diet. A list of the major studies completed is shown in Table 4. On the basis of substantial safety factors determined in these studies, it is concluded that alitame is safe for its intended use as a component of the diet of man. The appropriateness of the animal studies is supported by the fact that the major metabolites of the compound are common to laboratory animals and man.
