SAYS BIG EATERS GET KIDNEY
Take a Glass of Cold Water and Kid
neco to Flush Kidneys if Back
Omit All Meat From Diet if You Feel
Rheumatic or Bladder Bothers.
The American men and women must
guard constantly against kidney trouble,
because we eat too much and and all
our food is rich. Our blood is filled
with uric acid which the kidneys strive
to filter out, they weaken from over
work, because sluggish; the elimina
tive tissues clog and the result is kid
ney trouble, bladder weakness and a
general decline in health.
When your kidneys feel like lumps
of lead, your back hurts or the urine
is cloudy full of sediment or you are
obliged to seek relief two or three times
during the night; if you suffer with
sick headache or dizzy, nervous spells,
and stomach, or have rhumatism when
the weather is bad, get from any drug
druggist about one dozen kidneco tab
lets; take one with a glass of water be
fore each meal for a few days and
your kidneys will then act fine. This
famous remedy is made from perfectly
harmless ingredients and acts quickly
and has been used for generations to
flush and stimulate clogged kidneys;
to neutralize the acids in the urine so
it no longer is a source of irritation,
thus ending bladder disorders.
Kidneco is inexpensive; cannot in
jure, make no mistake, insist on kidne

nobody can make a mistake by having
a kidney flushing any time.
