WHAT THE KIDNEYS DO
Their Unceasing Work kr?n?? Us
Strong and Health*.
All the biood in the body passes
through the kidneys once every three
minutes. The kidneys filter the blood.
They work night and day. When
healthy they remove about 500 grains
of impure matter daily, when un
healthy some part of this impure mat
ter 13 left in the blood. This brings
on many diseases and symptoms?
pain in the back, headache, nervous
ness, hot. dry skin, rheumatism, gout,
gravel, disorders, of the eyesight and
hear.'-.',', dizziness, irregular heart,
debility, drowsiness, dropsy, deposits
in the urine, etc. But if you keep the
(liters right you will have no trouble
with your kidneys.
