Chart believed to be the work of T. C. Fry.  However, Fry evidently was never introduced to the brix method of food evaluation.  If he had, he probably would have revised the "Toxicity" column to give negative marks to low brix foods because of their tendency to accumulate excess nitrates.  Conversely, he more than likely would have given *positive* values to those foods rated "excellent" on the brix scale.  This would, of course, have caused values IN EXCESS OF 100.
