NATURE'S PROTECTIOH AGAINST DISEASE
The preservation of health and prevention against disease is almost
entirely dependent upon pure, healthy blood ; every org-an, tissue, nerve and
sinew of the body draws on this vital fluid for nourishment and strength.
Poisons, humors and ge: ms from various sources olten get into the blood,
and then this great life-stream becomes a source of infection and disease,
instead of a nourishing, health-sustaining fluid. Heredity is likewise an
important factor, regulating the quality of the blood. Some persons are born
with tainted blood from diseased ancestry, and Scrofula in one of its numerous
forms is sure to crop out some time in life. Not only poisons in the blood
are responsible for disease, but when the circulation is run down and becomes
poor and weak in quality, then we see the effect in a general bad condition
of healtn, such as weakness, sallow complexions, boils, and various skin
eruptions. 1 All blood troubles require a tonic and blood purifier, and none
other equals S. S. S. It goes down to the
very foundation of the trouble, and removes
every particle of the poison or impurity from
the blood. Aud not only does S. S. S.
antidote the poisons, humors and germs, but
it possesses health-giving, tonic properties,
which build up and strengthen weak, impov
erished blood, and fortifies the svstem against
disease."' S. S. S. permanently cures Rheumatism. Catarrh, Sores and Ulcers,
Scrofula, Eczema, Tetter, and all other skin diseases and disorders. Book
on the blood and any medical advice free.
