What are the "facts of the origin and development of" the words: nutrition and nourish?
"nourish (v.) ...
late 13c., ... from O.Fr. norriss-, stem of norrir (Mod.Fr. nourrir), from L. nutrire "to feed, nurse, foster, support, preserve," from *nutri (older form of nutrix "nurse"), lit. "she who gives suck," from PIE root *(s)nau- "to swim, flow, let flow," hence "to suckle" (cf. Skt. snauti "she drips, gives milk;" Gk. nan "I flow," nein "to swim;" L. nare "to swim"). Related: Nourished; nourishing."
Also: "nutrition (n.) ...
1550s, from L. nutritionem (nom. nutritio) 'a nourishing,' from pp. stem of nutrire 'nourish, suckle' (see nourish)."
Not really surprisingly - the origin of the word "nutrition" goes back to "nourish" which comes from the Latin word to "nurse" as in breast-feeding! Here is "the pure milk of the word"!

I would like you to contrast the spirit of "nutrition - nourish - nurse and breast-feeding" with the "truth" of pasteurization as I have presented in other posts including: "Pasteurization and The "Milk Problem"
Pasteurized foods are (relatively speaking) a recent phenomena that originated from and exists in commerce.
Sandor Katz says: "Industrially produced food is dead. It servers our connection to the life forces that sustain us and deprives us of our access to the powerful magic so abundantly present in the natural world" Consequently - we are losing and have lost many live-culture foods that were traditionally part of our multi-diversified cultures; foods that once connected us with the very life forces that are part and parcel of a culture's truly nourishing nutritional wisdom. he industrially produced foods of commerce have dumbed us down.
"The term dumbing down describes the deliberate diminishment of the intellectual level of the content of literature, film, schooling and education, news, and other aspects of culture. Conceptually, the term 'dumb down' originated (ca. 1933) as movie-business slang, used by screenplay writers, to mean 'revise so as to appeal to those of little education or intelligence'. The occurrences of dumbing down vary in nature, but usually involve the over-simplification of critical thought to the degree of undermining the concept of intellectual standards — of language and learning — whereby are justified the trivialization of cultural, artistic, and academic standards of cultural works, as in popular culture."
Although food is not included as one of the aspects of culture where a "deliberate diminishment of the intellectual level" occurs there most certainly has been a dumbing down in "literature, film, schooling and education, news, and other aspects of culture" about food and nutrition. One most foundational example is the exclusion of the work of Weston A. Price in "schooling and education".
In addition consider the idea of "brain food". What were the traditional "brain foods". Are these foods included among the modern day foods of commerce?
Then consider the anti-brain foods like sugar and virtually every processed food with sugar in it and yet which is a major part of the S.A.D. Standard American Diet advocated by "the American Dietetic Association (ADA) who is now known as the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics"
I see a whole lot of dumbing down with, in and all about our food! One traditional food that I am passionately devoted to defending is that of "raw milk". As of today, July 23, 2012 - my "Raw Milk: The Whole Truth" blog has
228 blog entries and has been viewed 242,845 times. This one food item can be a perfect example of all the above from both a positive and a negative perspective.
For instance real milk is the mother of the first stream that I have set out above re: "nutrition - nourish - nurse and breast-feeding". That is the positive perspective and the one that I have been actively advocating for well over the past eighteen years.
The negative perspective at first glance may appear to be about the same food but in truth it is really all about a completely different industrialized and commercially processed item that has virtually has the same name of "milk", but since it has been so utterly transformed in many ways - I don't believe it can honestly be considered the same food! I do not take that S.I.C. (Severely Industrialized & Commercialized) product and I do not advocate taking it at all. Buyer beware!

"Raw Milk For Better Nutrition"
"A Guide to Selecting Raw Milk for Nutrition" By Gary Wilson

"People who advocate a return to drinking raw milk for better nutrition may fail to take into account that milk, like all food, varies in nutrition according to the agronomic choices made in producing it. As you might expect, agronomic choices are made to increase yield. Unfortunately, this is done without concern for nutrition. Recommendations for choosing raw milk for nutrition: Find out the breed of dairy cow producing the milk, avoiding Holsteins if possible. Find out the average lactation for the herd, with under 4,500 liters being desirable. Find out the color of the butter, with the more yellow being better with the cows on green grass. Find out if the cows are on green grass exclusively during the season or if they are fed dry feed, keeping in mind that drought may make supplementary hay necessary until the grass recovers."
This is a two-page article available from the online catalog of the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation
Breast milk also varies in nutrition
Also, from "Our Universal Journey" By George Kavassilas:
"The Feminine aspect of the Creator manifested Herself as our Milky Way Galaxy, the nurturing of the Mother's Milk." Then that "nurturing of the Mother's Milk" also manifested as our Mother Earth. No wonder we have the great myth of Krishna and the milk maidens along with the sacred cows! We live on a planet that is imbued with "the nurturing of the Mother's Milk"!

"... Dr. Cowan takes pro-vaccine logic to task, pointing out that the push to eradicate certain illnesses actually leaves small children more vulnerable to them! How so? Small children receive natural protection from many common childhood illnesses via their mother’s milk, but this protection is predicated on something important: they will receive it only if their mother naturally experienced the illnesses. A vaccinated mother creates an at-risk newborn, one who comes into the world denied the natural protections that the mother’s milk would normally provide. Thus, it is not those who are wary of vaccines that put people, especially infants, at risk, but those who push vaccines relentlessly on all people regardless of the vaccines’ actual risks and benefits."
