Answer

  • In  antarctica food rarely gets spoiled because of the excessive amount of cold weather.
  • The Extreme cold makes people feel very hungry and hard work such as that involved in travelling by dog sledge, or especially by manhauling uses a great deal of energy.
  • This energy had to be replaced by eating enough, unfortunately the early explorers didn't eat enough and suffered as a consequence.
