Constipation: The Most Dangerous Disease – Strength Magazine – November, 1925

The most dangerous disease that afflicts humanity is not smallpox, pneumonia, typhoid, or even tuberculosis, which levies its grim toll upon one out of every twelve civilized humans. It is common constipation-not so much a disease in itself as a cause of other diseases. Constipation is the head and front of the condition that so lowers the body’s resistance that germs or toxins of innumerable, dangerous and even fatal disorders are enabled to gain lodgement, and find, already prepared, a fertile field for development.
