simply a necessary part of the body, which takes care of Itself.
A microscopic examination of one drop of blood shows million
of minute bodies or cerpusclee. each an individual life force. Thai
life of a corpuscle la usually six weeks and must be replaced, science
tells us, at the startling rate of S, 000,000 per second.
Good blood Is the foundation of good health and can only be at
tained through a stomach In good condition.
The source of most ills is traceable directly to the stomach,
, which acta as a power plants converting the food we eat into blood.
Like all machinery the stomach occasionally falls la its duties and
requires assistance to put it In proper condition. - '
