Why then, if tuberculosis can be

we not all suffer with the symptoms

“The specific or definite cause of
tuberculosis is a germ or organism.

a healthy body no harm is done
because the body fights back. But
if one lives daily with a careless

danger is great. Kissing, coughing

Overweight and the Failing Heart.
One of the hard tasks for physi
cian and patient is when there is a
great amount of fat in and on the
body and the patient has a weak or
damaged heart.
The most effective method of re
ducing weight is cutting down on
the food intake and increasing the
exercise. Unfortunately the over
weight patient with a heart condi
tion needs food to maintain his
strength and can take little or no
exercise owing to the strain exer
cise puts upon the heart.
In addition to getting out of breath
easily many of these patients begin
to get a little swelling in the feet
which means they must get off the
feet more, and keep the feet on an
other chair when sitting. While this
may mean less work for the heart
it of course means less work or ex
ercise for the body and more fat
Therefore when the physician un
dertakes the treatment of the over
weight heart patient he does so, not
with fear and trembling as to what
must be done, but with fear and
trembling that his patient will not
follow his suggestions faithfully;
that he will continue to eat more
than his body needs.
One of the laws that applies to
all the organs or functioning proc
esses of the body is briefly: “An
organ performing its work with dif
ficulty undergoes a gradual deteri
oration, if increased activity is per
sisted in.” This doesn’t mean that
1 the organs or tissues will not or
are not able to do many times the
necessary work, but it does mean
that if an overload is placed on it,
and it has to work with this over
load for a long time, the fibers or
i tissues of the organ lose their
strength and elasticity, just as a
piece of elastic kept greatly
stretched too long will lose some of
its power to contract.
It is therefore getting these over
weights to lessen the amount of
their food intake and thus take the
overload off the heart (due to its
having to nourish this extra fat and
weight of the body) that the physi
cian so persistently aims at.
The converse or opposite of this
rule is: “If the work demanded of a
diseased or failing organ be a lit
tle less than it is really able to do,
a certain degree of power will be
restored.” In the case of the heart
this is known as “heart reserve.”
You can see then how important
it is to the overweight heart patient
that he get rid of his fat and lessen
the work on the heart. “When the
heart muscle is suffering from any
abnormal mechanical handicap
(such, for instance, as having to
pump blood to a large quantity of
inactive fat tissue) and shows signs
of failing, it should be given as
| nearly as possible absolute rest to
; regain some of its lost power."
