Of Interest to Women BABIES AND CONSUMPTION Noted Physician De clares That No Adult Ever Acquires Tuberculosis By GARRETT P. SERVISS In glancing over an article on the relations of diseases by Dr. Charles 12. Woodruff I hit upon this statement: "There is no incontrovertible evi dence that any adult ever acquires tuberculosis." Then why. I said to myself, are the doctors continually warning us against the danger of becoming infected with the terms of consumption'.' If no adult ever acquires tuberculosis (con sumption), then all grown-up people can snap their lingers at its germs and defy them. I did not have to read very far, how ever, before I found the explanation, and it is a thing of so much interest to every human being that—assuming that Dr. Woodruff is sure of his facts —I feel that it ought to be brought to everybody's attention. The essence of the explanation is found in the following sentences: "Babies arc born free of tubercu losis, but begin to acquire it as soon as they can crawl around, pick up the bacilli with dust and dirt, and imme diately convey them to the mouth after the manner of all babies. Weakened by Sunlight "These germs are weakened or at tenuated by sunlight, drying, etc., and are not able to spread actively, though they establish themselves. Those which are taken in by the phagocytes have the same effect as vaccination and cause the production of antibodies which make us all more or less im mune to infection of virulent bacilli. If a baby is infected by fresh, virulent bacilli from a nurse before its im munity is produced it dies of rapidly disseminated tuberculosis, but an adult is not harmed by the virulent bacilli he takes in." So. if all this is correct, and I am not competent to dispute it, consump tion always plants its first seeds in babies and never in adults, and if the baby can manage, by early exercise ot' the art of crawling, to infect itself with weakened bacilli, and thus be come immune, it can defy the later attacks of virulent consumptive germs in the same way that its elders do. Moreover, if it were not for the baby's habit of crawling and of tasting everything it picks up, it would not become immune, and the protective "antibodies" of which Dr. Woodruff speaks would not net established in our blood and free us henceforth from the danger of acquiring tuberculosis. But now the reader may ask, in his turn. "How does it happen, then, that anybody except a young baby that has never crawled ever dies of consump tion?" The answer is as interesting as any thing that has preceded and is per haps of greater importance: "If an adult develops active tuber culosis it is not a new infection, but an activation of latent lesions that he has been carrying since childhood. Resistance. Is Destroyed "Something has happened fo him which has caused a temporary lessen ing of his antibodies and allowed the latent tuberculosis to spread, and nothing is more potent in doing this than infections like measles, whooping cough and typhoid fever. Without these activating causes a man may lose immunity very slowly by improper food, mental and physical exhaustion, living in badly ventilated rooms, lack of outdoor exercise and a thousand other ways of lowering general health, but if one in such a condition does acquire another infection like pneu monia, typhoid fever or influenza, his chances of becoming actively tuber cular later are very large." And then read this: "Post-mortems of children almost always reveal tubercle, no matter what the disease was which caused death. Post-mortems of adults always show healed lesions, proving that at some time in our lives each of us lost resist ance sufficiently to allow the lesions to become active, though we were later cured by a re-establishment of the immunity. One-eighth or one tenth of us are unable to re-establish it and perish from tuberculosis." Must Purify the Water Bong life, then, to the antibodies and blessings on the crawliftg baby that picks them up and nourishes them in its blood until they become as a shield and a sword of defense for adult humanity! I have no thought of treating this subject lightly. If what Dr. Wood ruff says is correct, ho is undoubtedly right in declaring that the facts he sets forth are bound most profoundly lo modify the anti-tuberculosis cru sade. One of the new weapons of de fense against consumption will be Purification of the water supply, which strikes at the universal enemy over the shoulders of its ally, typhoid fever. IF Ills AND = BLUER BOTHER Take Salts to flush Kidneys and neutralize irritating acids. Kidney and Bladder weakness re sult from uric acid, says a noted au thority. The kidneys Alter this acid from the blood and pass it on to the bladder, where it often remains to irritate and inflame, causing a burn ing, scalding sensation, or setting up an irritation at the neck of the blad der, obliging you to seek relief two or three times during the night. The tsuflerer is in constant dread, the water passes sometimes with a scalding sen sation and is very profuse; again, there is difficulty in avoiding it. Bladder weakness, most folks call It, because they can't control urina tion. While It is extremely annoying and sometimes very painful, this i& really one of the most simple ailments to overcome. Get about four ounces of Jad Salts from your pharmacist mid take a tablespoonful in a glass of water before breakfast, continue this for two or three days. This will neu tralize the acids in the urine so it no longer is a source of Irritation to the bladder and urinary organs which then act normally again.
