Spanish to English translations [PRO] Medical - Nutrition / Quote by Hippocrates
Spanish term or phrase:Que la comida sea tu alimento y el alimento tu medicina
The quote in English is "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food" or variants thereof, and it seems as if the Spanish version above is definitely the preferred one, but my doubt is why the emphasis is slightly different, when both purport to be translating the same Greek phrase. Does anyone have any sources that confirm one of these translations from the Greek?

Asker: Unfortunately, and although it's no proof, the hits for the direct translation are 35,400 while the hits for the translation provided by the client are 53,400. So I'm afraid I'm still very unsure!
