IS ALUM POIMOXOCHI
Hale's Journal of Health.
"This question has caused a good deal
of discussion . Alum is used by many
bakers to whiten their bread, enabling
tbem to use an inferior flour. It is most
entensively employed ss a cbeap substitute
for cream ot tartar in tbe manufacture of
baking powders. It bas not been con
sidertd immediately d ingerom; alth mgh
if continued it induces rivspepMaand
obstiua-e consupti on. Bui tue iacl
that many caeeB of poisoning have occured
from the use of aluui, puts the question
in a more serioas aspect, and prudent
people will exercise ciutiou in the selec
tion of baking powders."
"Uoder what conditions then, does this
substance formerly used only for me
chanical or medicinal purposes liecome
poisonous T They are certainly obscure,
and at present we can only surmise what
tbey may be. We suspect that the cause
exists in the individual poisoned; some
peculiarity of the constitution producing
a morbid change in the secretions of the
stoma' h. with which the alum combines
and form) en active poiroo; or tht secre
lion may be healthy but in unusual pro
portions, and that these less or greater
proportions in combination with the alum
constitute a poison.
"For example, two parts of mercury and
two parts 01 chlorine lorm calomel, which
is not poisonous, but chance the propor
tions to one part mercury and two parts
of chlorine, and we get corrosive subli
mate, which is a deadly poison.
"Then again we know nothing of the
constitutional peculiarities. Wny is it
that one person can eat all kinds of green
fruits and vegetables with impunity,
wh'le the same course might cost another
individual his life? One person can han -
die poison ivy and sumac without being
in the least aaected; another is poisoned
if he anproiches to within 10 feet of
them, out or a family residing in a
malaiial district, some of the members
will suffer half the year with fever and
ague, while the others will enj ly excel,
lent health during the entire year. Foods
that are wholesome to some persons are
actually poisonous to others. This is es
pecially true of some kinds offish. There
is no safety in taking alum into the stom
ach, as it is shown tube always injurious,
and often dangerous."
The Scientific American published in a
recent number a list cf alum and ammon
ia baking powders, which U of great
value at this lime. Fo 1 wicg is the list
compiled from official reports. Powders
