(United States Senator and former Health Commissioner of
I find in my mail a letter from a lady in Pennsylvania. She asks
me three questions, about hardening of the arteries, sleeplessness and
neuritis. I assume that this lady is suffering from all these symptoms.
She may regard them as three separate and distinct ailments. As a mat

Hardening of the arteries cannot be regarded
as a disease. It is merely one of the symptoms
>f a manner of living which has not been entirely
proper. Carelesseness about the eating, neglect of
the bowels, failure of elimination by the kid
neys—these are other symptoms resulting from
the manner of living which is responsible for the
trouble with the arteries.
If we were to live close to Nature, keeping
all of Nature's rules, I suppose we might live on
for a hundred years or more, possessing all the
functions and capable of all the activities of
youth. The very fact that we do not live to such
an age. and in advance age do not possess such
health as I have indicated, is our own fault or the
fault of our parents.
The system must have an ample supply of
me various substances which are used in the tissues of the body. Not
-< alone must it have an ample supply, but it must not have an over
supply. If too much of a given mineral is constantly fed, there may
be a deposit of the surplus in some part of the body. In this wav the
artery ■walls may be overcrowded
with the mineral supply.
