  Christiaan Eijkman (www.whonamedit.com)
Christiaan Eijkman was the seventh child of Johanna Alida Pool and Christiaan Eijkman, a boarding-school proprietor in the small Gelderland town of Nijkerk, situated at the northern border of the Veluwe region.
Eijkman now supposed that the causative factor must be sought in the food, especially the polished and boiled rice.
Eijkman discovered that the real cause of beriberi was the deficiency of some vital substance in the staple food of the natives, which is located in the so-called "silver skin" (pericarpium) of the rice.

Christiaan Eijkman was born on August 11, 1858 in the Dutch town of Nijkerk.
Eijkman was still suffering from malaria and was recently widowed but he decided he wanted to work at the new institute.

Nevertheless, it was the researches of Eijkman that formed the basis of the understanding of the role of vitamins in nutrition, and that led to the discovery of thiamin (vitamin B1) in 1926 by B.C.P. Jansen and W.F. Donath.

As a result of his findings, Captain James Cook made it mandatory that every English sailor be supplied with rations of lemons and limes, enabling to sail around the world scurvy-free, as well as supplying them with the nickname "limeys." Today, it is well known that scurvy is due to vitamin C deficiency.
Christiaan Eijkman, a Dutch physician, is famous for his nutritional research.
He discovered vitamin B. In 1897, Christiaan Eijkman proved that an element in unpolished rice was essential to proper functioning of the nervous system and carbohydrate metabolism, and that a deficiency in that ingredient could cause beriberi and other diseases.

 Christiaan Eijkman (1858-1930)
Eijkman fue designado primer director del laboratorio, al tiempo que dirigía una pequeña escuela médica destinada a la formación de profesionales indígenas.
Eijkman, sin embargo, interpretaba los resultados de forma distinta a como lo hacemos hoy; para él la corteza del arroz contenía una “antitoxina” que anulaba los efectos de una toxina que segregaba algún microorganismo, cuyo desarrollo se veía favorecido por las dietas de arroz descascarillado.
Eijkman estudió también la llamada “anemia tropical”, a la que negó entidad propia; investigó la relación del metabolismo con factores geoclimáticos e ideó un test de fermentación, como hemos dicho.

 Eijkman, Christiaan
Christiaan Eijkman (1858-1930) discovered that not all diseases were caused by microorganisms like bacteria and viruses, but that some were due to dietary deficiencies, particularly deficiencies of certain vitamins.
Encouraged by Koch, Eijkman joined a commission sent to the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia) in 1887 to investigate the disease beriberi and begin the work that was to make him famous.
Eijkman, whose work served as the basis for the modern theory of vitamins, shared the Nobel Prize in medicine with Hopkins in 1929.

Eijkman observed that hens in his Jakarta laboratory suffered symptoms of nerve disease (polyneuritis) that were strikingly similar to those for beriberi--including muscle weakness, nerve degeneration, and paralysis.
Eijkman failed in this effort, but in 1897 he did succeed in establishing something more significant.
Eijkman and his successor, Gerrit Grijns, later used water or ethanol to extract the mysterious antineuritic factor from rice hulls.

Eijkman and his colleagues were also not the first to try to identify the cause of beriberi.

Eijkman had still not demonstrated conclusively how polished rice was part of the process in which bacteria caused beriberi in humans.

Eijkman got himself appointed to the beri-beri committee to look into this disease, which was ravaging the Far East, especially closed communities like the army, navy, and prisons.
Eijkman discovered this change, and it was the key, although he continued to believe for a long time that the disease was caused by something in the polished rice, rather than a deficiency of something.
