POISON OR HEALTH Which Do You Get From Your Food?
By R. L. ALSAKER, M.D. OU DON'T have to take arsenic or "carbolic" in order to yourself. You can do it
food, simply by not knowing what-when-and how to eat. TOOD'S purpose is to feed you, but it can kill you as well. The best of foods, when improperly combined and eaten, produce disease and
invite death. The day's menu given below is a truly “ horrible example" of how not to eat, if your object in eating is nourishment and health. If you do not care to preserve your health, this menu will do as well as any.
R. L. ALSAKER. M.D
Grapefruit with Sugar
Bacon and Eggs
Split Pea Soup
Bread and Butter
THESE are good foods, but the day's
menu is so unbalanced that it is practically certain to induce disease of
some kind, especially wlien each day's menu is similarly unbalanced. And therein lies almost the sole reason for nearly all sickness.
Half of the people are more or less sick all the time, and all the people are sick half the time, because they live on just such meals. It is the stern old law of cause and effect at work. You can't dodge it. Those who violate nature's laws must payyoung or old, rich or poor.
There are lots of things the matter with this menu; too many to be discussed within the limited space of this article. One of them is that it does not contain foods which are absolutely essential to pure blood, and therefore to health. Their absence means that the blood is being loaded with poisonous acids that quickly undermine the health. Another fault is that it contains too much fuel-food-especially starches.
This menu contains enough starches and sugars to meet the normal requirements of an adult human being for two or three days, and its inevitable result is to clog and clutter up the whole machinery of the body with poisonous waste matter which breeds all manner of disease.
The digestive organs, unable to dispose of this waste, manufacture it into alcohol, gases, acids and ptomaines and turn them loose in your system to commit murder! Adenoids, enlarged tonsils, catarrh, headaches, diabetes, Bright's disease, constipation, tuberculosis, arteriosclerosis, rheumatism, indigestionare but a few of the disorders that owe their origin to this cause.
We eat ourselves into disease and failure. The bread-meat-potato diet has produced more human wrecks and filled more graves than all the wars of history combined. Our most dangerous enemy is food, carelessly prepared in our own kitchens! Good food and ignorance in its use-There is the common enemy of health.
If you get up in the morning with a “dark brown taste" in your mouth and a feeling at the back of your head as if it had been stepped on by a mastodon, don't“ take something for it "-get after the enemy in the kitchen. Correct your eating habits. Then instead of getting up "all worn out” and feverish, and with "that tired feeling.” pulling and nagging at you all over, you will get up "fresh as a daisy,” alert and vigorous, and ready for the day's work. Correct eating will make a man of you. Incorrect eating may make a corpse
Disease is an abnormal condition; health is the natural state. Acute disease is un. necessary. Chronic disease is always prevent. able and nearly always curable. Permanent, dependable health is the result of correct knowledge of living put into practice. People spend several years and hundreds of dollars to acquire a trade or profession. Health knowledge is worth more than any trade or profession, for everything worth while is based on health. To go through life full of fear of disease or suffering from various ills is not living. That is merely existing.
No, as Doctor Alsaker says: Disease is not a necessity, but a fearfully expensive luxury. Can you afford it? Aside froin its cost in money-in loss of time-in increased efficiency and earning-power, can you afford its cost in suffering, and in the humiliating knowledge that you are no longer a man, but that most tragic of all living beings, an invalid ? Can you afford it ?
If not, then it is time you armed yourself against the common enemy of perfect health -incorrect eating. For this purpose Dr. R. L. Alsaker's new book, “Eating for Health and Efficiency” is the weapon that will give you victory over the enemy in the kitchen, and make good food your servant, instead of a cruel and malevolent foe.
This book of scientific instructions on healthful living shows you in a plain, nontechnical, perfectly simple manner, how to
arrange your eating in such a way as to carry out the purposes of nature instead of thwari. ing them; how to eat for health and strength instead of committing suicide with a knife and fork.
If you want to live, work, play, love and be loved to a ripe old age, it is within your power to do so. Get correct health knowledge and live it. In “Eating for Health and Efficiency' Dr. Alsaker has produced the equivalent of a college-course on foods and their uses in health and disease. You are not asked to discontinue any good food. You are told how to combine and eat all good foods so as to produce health. Those who adopt Dr. Alsaker's plan of living, not only learn how to prevent sickness and save doctor bills, but how to live better for less money. With this knowledge at hand any one can save the cost of this book every month.
It is impossible to do this really remark. able book even approximate justice in the limited space of a magazine article. The work must be seen and read and its teachings given a thorough test in your own home. hotel or club, to be fully appreciated. And so I will send you this book, all charges prepaid, for thirty days' examination on receipt of price. As to my responsibility, I refer to the publishers of The Outlook and to the Commercial Agencies. My bankers are The Corn Exchange Bank, The Garfield National Bank, and The People's Trust Co., of New York City.
If you really want to know how to have health every day and all day send only three dollars for
Eating for Health and Efficiency" at once. Follow its teachings for thirty days; compare the advice, instruction, and general health infor: mation with the best you have ever received from any physician, at any price, then, if you are perfectly satisħed with your investment, keep the book; otherwise return it and your money will be refunded immediately, and without question.
