Uric Acid Is Slow Poison
Excess uric acid left in the blood by
weak kidneys, causes more diseases
than any other poison.
Among its effects are backache, head
ache, dizziness, irritability, nervousness,
drowsiness, “blues,” rheumatic attacks
and urinary disorders. Later effects
are dropsy, gravel or heart disease.
If you would avoid uric acid troubles,
keep your kidneys healthy. To stimu
late and strengthen weak kidneys, use
Doan's Kidney Pills—the best recom
meuded special kidney remedy.
