What an M. D. Learned.
A prominent physician of Rome,
Georgia, went through a food experi
ence which he makes public:
"It was my 'own experience that
first led me to advocate Grape-Nuts
food and I also know from having pre
scribed it to convalescents and other
weak patients that the food is a won
derful rebuilder and restorer of nerve
and brain tissue, as well as muscle.
It improves the digestion and sick
patients always gain just as I did in
strength and weight very rapidly.
"I was in such a low state that I had
to give up my work entirely and go to
the mountains of this state, but two
months there did not Improve me; in
fact I was not quite .as well as' when I
left home. My food absolutely re
fused to sustain mo and it became
plain that I must change, then I began
to use Grape-Nuts food and in two
weeks I could walk a mile without the
loast fatigue and in five weeks re
turned to my home and practice, tak
ing up hard work again. Since that
tirso I have felt as well and strong as
I ever did in my life.
"As a physician who seeks to help
all sufferers I consider it a duty to
make these facts public." Name giv

Trial 10 days on Grape-Nuts when
the regular food does not seem to sub
