Ask the Doctor – Strength Magazine – January, 1928

It has been argued by profound students in gastro-interology such as Dr. Lyons, of Philadelphia, that fasts, unless especially prescribed for some acute condition such as hemorrhage from ulcer, or some acute condition such as rupture or perforation of any viscera or acute inflammation such as acute appendicitis, obstruction of the bowels, etc., are decidedly harmful. It has been proven that the gall bladder is active and pours out the very essential antiseptic and digestive bile best by ingestion of foods, particularly digestible fats such as cream, olive oil, egg yolk, etc.
