This Terrible Truth – Strength Magazine – November, 1924

When sickness or disease assails your home and the doctor comes, what is the first question that he asks? “How are your bowels?” He asks it so regularly that you have come to look upon it almost as a formality to be expected. However, it is not a formality but a tremendously serious question which harsh experience has taught him to always ask because in
nine cases out of ten where sickness is present it is due to constipation, that state of bowel inactivity which is sooner or later directly responsible for nearly all the diseases that afflict the human flesh.
