How To Get Relief
Scientists Agree That the Cause Is
Due to Waste Products In
The blood is the means by which J
all tissues, muscles, ligaments and
flesh of the body are directly or j
indirectly nourished. It is also j
through the blood stream that wornout
tissues and waste products are i
cast out of the system.
When waste products accumulate. ,
they are a menace to life. They j
cause a lowered vitality, many skin
disorders and rheumatism. Genuine \
relief .from the agonies of rheuma- j
t?sm can be had only by correcting)
j the basic trouble?waste product*.
Thousands and thousands of men i
and women during the past 50 years
have cleared their blo'id of waste .
products with S. S. S. It is the ideal |
I i.mody for rheumatism, because it j
removes the poisonous waste mat- j
ter which is causing the trouble, j
