    1. I am so glad that you enjoyed the book! There is so much misinformation concerning Ancel and Margaret Keys on the Internet. They were amazing scientists who made a difference. They were no doubt members of the “The Greatest Generation.” The development of the K rations and the Minnesota Starvation studies provided valuable service to the war effort during World War II.
