Doctor Says Crying Need Of The Woman Of Today Is More Iron In Her Blood TO PUT STRENGTH IN HER NERVES AND COLOR IN HER CHEEKS. Any Woman Who Tires Easily, is Nervoiis or Irritable, or Looks Pale, Hagfgard And Worn Should Have Her Blood Examined for Iron Deficiency. Administration of Nuxated Iron in Clinical Tests Gives Most Aston ishing Youthful Strength and Makes Women Look Years Younger. There can be no healthy, beautiful roar cheeked women nlthont Iron," says Dr. Ferdi nand King, a New York physician and author. "In my recent taiKs to physicians on the crave and serious consequences of iron deficiency in the blood of American women. 1 lav strongly emphasized the fact that doctors should prescribe more organic iron nuxat ed iron for their jiervoua, run-down, w.al; hnc?crnrd-Iook- lng women patients. Pallor means anaemia. The kln of the inaemlc woman Is pale, the flesh flabby. The muscles lack tone, the brain fags and the memory falls, and often they become -weak, nervous. Irritable, de spondent and melancholy. When the Iron goes from the blood of women, the roses go from their cheeks. "In the most common foods of America, the starches sug ars, table syrups, candies, pol ished rice, white bread, soda, crackers, biscuits, maca roni, spaghetti, tapioca, sa go famla, determinated cornmeal no longer Is Iron to be found. Kenning pro cesses have removed the iron of Mother Earth from these Impoverished foods, and silly methods of home cookery, by throwing down the waste pipe the water In which our vegetables are cooked, are responsible for another grave iron loss. "Therefore, If you wish to preserve your youthful vim and vigor to a ripe old age, you mutt supply the Iron de ficiency In your food by using some form of organic Iron, just as you would use salt when your food has not enou h salt "As I have said a hundred times over, organic Iron Is the greatest of all gtrengtn ouuaers. lr people vould only throw away pat ent medicines and nauseous concoctions and take simple nuxated Iron. I am convinc ed that the lives of thou sands of persons might be saved who now die every year from penumonia. grippe, consumption, kid ney, liver, heart trouble, etc The real and true cause which started their disease was nothing more r or less than a weaKened t-onauion brought on by lack of iron In the blood. "On account of the peculiar nature of woman, and the great drain placed upon her system at certain periods, she re quires iron much more than man to help ake up for the loss. "Iron Is also absolutely necessary to enable your blood to change food Into living tissue. Without it. no matter how much or what you eat, your food merely passes through you without do ing you any good. You don't get the strength out of it. and as a consequence you become weak, pale and sickly look ing, lust like a plant trying to grow In a soil deficient in Iron.
