Drilled into the public mind Is a respect for cert an diseases, as well
is a sense of conviction regarding them. It is almost Impossible to change
pular opinion. It becomes almost as lived as the laws of Nature.
"Rheumatism” is a disease of this sort. It is
all but impossible to make the average man
believe he is mistaken about it. He was taught
:n his youth that going withoi.t a warm coat, get
ting the feet wet. or sitting n a draught, would
cause rheumatism. He hates to be disturbed in

Of course there are other factors. We cannot disregard the
lowered powers of resistance which result from underfeeding or some
thing else that lessens the nutrition
of the body. Da/npness and exposure
have their effects It cannot be de

right living is a factor.
From time to time I write about
the evil effects of ‘‘lime starvation.”
In childhood particularly it is vital
to have an unfailing supply of lime.
Without it all sorts of troubles!
But there is another side trr the'
lime question. There is such a thing
as getting too much lime and for
that matter too much phosphorus.
These two minerals have an inti
mate relationship to bone develop- <
ment. Bone and Joint and tendon
are close relatives. What disturbs
the welfare of one may cause trou

lime and phosphorus may 'cause,

them, as well as in the joints.

another occasion. It is an interest
But I was speaking about the in
fection theory. According to this
teaching, if we have diseased gums,
abscessed teeth, infected tonsils or
chronic infection somewhere else in
the body, the germs may be carried
through the blood stream to one or
more of the joints.
What happens then? Inflamma

These are some of the present
day ideas about rheumatism. We
cannot hope to find a means of
overcoming the ailment unless we
seek for its cause. The real factor
