Weekly Health Talks
URIC ACID IN THE SYSTEM
BY LEE H. SMITH, M. D.
Uric acid Is now generally recog
nized as the cause* of more disease»
than was heretofore believed. When
the kidney« are out of order uric acid
accumulate* within the body In super
abundance. The disordered kidneys
do not filter the poisons out of the
blood, as they ought to do, and so the
poisons remain In the blood and float
around until they find a place to
lodge, in form of urate salt»,
thing to remember Is that you may
have rheumatism In any part of the
body—you may have pains anywhere
—your back may ache and your head
muy be dizzy—hut the trouble is not j
where the pain appears.
The trouble is in the kidneys, and
what is the first thing to do? You must
get that excess uric acid out of your sys
tem, which can be done by taking Anuric
Tablets, the Splendid remedy which Dr.
Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., ha» put on »ale
in the drug »tore* at a low price. Anuric
Tablet» (made double strength), when
taken into the system «* medicine, have
the peculiar power of dissolving the uric
acid deposited there. Drop a bit of sugar
or salt into hot water, and it will disap
pear. In precisely the same way do these
Anuric Tablets dissolve uric acid,
course, after ridding the system of uric
acid, it may return again unless you eat
the right foods and live the right kind of
life, but Dr. Pierce will advise you fully
on proper food and correct living if you
write and ask him. He makes no charge
for such advice. Take Anuric Tablets to
day, by all means, and get that uric acid
out of your system. Don't, don't, don't,
put the matter off.
