Your Health,
The First Concern.
During 1924 one in five of the per-
sons who died in the United States
died as the result of one of the com-
plications of high blood pressure, ei-
ther heart failure, brain hemorrhage
or uremia.
‘Of persons after 45 years of age,
approximately one of three dies of
one of the terminal complications of
high blood pressure. Methods of re-
cording the blood pressure accurately
have been used only during the last
25 years. During that time many at-
tempts have been made to determine
the cause of high blood pressure, but
without success.
There has been much discussion as
to whether chronic inflammations of
the kidneys caused the high blood
pressure or resulted from it. Even
today there are many adherents on
both sides of this question.
However, there is a vast amount of
evidence to indicate that high blood
pressure is not always associated with
chronic inflammations of the kidneys,
and the great number of cases in
which the blood pressure is high with-
out any apparent inflammation of the
kidneys is sufficient to cancel the kid-
ney disease as the universal cause.
It is known that persons who are
considerably overweight after middle
age also tend to have high blood pres-
sure. At least a reduction of weight
in. such persons is frequently accom-
panied by a drop in the blood pres-
sure. Many cther conditions are like-
ly to be associated with the increased
blood pressure. Current views tend
to the belief that the exciting cause
1s some substance circulating in the
blood and associated with changes in
the tissue structures.
High blood pressure is one of the
things which seems to occur in fam-
ilies, so that either .the structure of
the body, the nature of the chemical
reaction, or some other hereditary
factor may be said to play some part.
. The most common method of treat-
ing the condition is by diminishing
body activities, and lowering the diet
so that less stress will be placed upon
the tissues.
High blood pressure is one of the
conditions which comes on insidiously,
but. is found frequently for the first
time during the course of a life in-
surance examination or by a periodic
physical examination.
The physician who discovers the
presence of an increased blood pres-
sure is likely to make a complete
physical examination of the patient
to determine any other defect which
may exist in the body, and his first
step will be to correct such defects.
Attention is paid particularly to in-
fections of the teeth, of the tonsils,
and of various organs in the body
which may be the source of chronic
irritations or for the dissemination of
Jueeton to other portions of the
Today the aphorism in the treat-
ment of high blood pressure is regu-
lar hours of play properly supervised,
regular hours of rest and plenty of
rest, and a low diet.
Studies of blood pressure shows
that the heart pumps 40 per cent less
blood when the person is standing
quietly than when he is in the lying
position. Here is the explanation of
why women grow faint when they
stand quietly during a dress fitting
and why soldiers at attention keel
Foods which are most apt to cause
high blood pressure are those contain-
ing purins. These are small bits which
are particularly numerous in meat
soups and extracts.
Omit such foods, therefore, as well
as meat itself, especially animal or-
gans used for foods such as liver,
kidneys and sweet breads.
The foods which are best for those
suffering from blood pressure are
starchy foods, vegetables, fruits, fats
and milk preparations.
It should be comparatively easy to
plan a diet, as it is chiefly a matter of
making up menus composed of fruits,
vegetables, starchy food and milk.
. A before-breakfast drink of fruit
juice is a good way to begin the day.
Breakfast may have raw or cooked
fruit, porridge, cereal with cream,
graham bread toast and a cup of hot
milk or cereal coffee.
For luncheon there may be a vege-
table salad with whole-wheat bread, a
dessert of ice-cream and another glass
of milk.
Dinner may begin with a cream of
vegetable soup and be followed by a
baked vegetable dish, a crisp salad
and a fruit or frozen dessert.

Don’t forget that the most import-
ant food elements present in any one
foodstuff are not always those exist-
ing in largest quantities.
Take potatoes, for example. Starch
makes up the principal portion of po-
tato, but starch may be had from any
number of other foods—bread, rice,
all cereals and the like. On the other
hand, the most important elements in
the potato are the mineral salts which
are found just next the skin.
Besides this, one of the chief ser-
vices rendered by the potato to the
diet lies in the fact that it is alkaline
in;its final reaction. Many would be
benefitted if they took potatoes in-
stead of bread with their meals, for
potatoes leave an alkaline residue.

Pennsylvania Needs More Foodstuffs.
So rapidly is the population of the
| Commonwealth increasing that farm-
ers in Pennsylvania have not, in spite
of all the improved methods, kept
pace in the production of food pro-
ducts, records of the Pennsylvania
Department of Agriculture show.
While production per farmer has in-
creased 40 per cent in the last 50
years, nevertheless population has in-
creased so fast that, if this total pro-
duction today were distributed equal-
ly among all the people, each would
have 40 per cent less home grown
produce than each had a half century
ago, studies made by the bureau of
statistics reveal.
The population has increased ap-
proximately 6,000,000 since 1870
while the production of wheat, for
example, has increased only 5,000,-
000 bushels, which means that the
per capita production has decreased
from almost five bushels to two bush-
els. The present per capita consump-
tion is estimated at more than four
bushels. The production of potatoes,
however, has almost kept pace with
consumption by an increase of 14,400,-
000 bushels.
Pennsylvania farms come nearer
meeting the demand within the Com-
monwealth for apples, potatoes, milk
and eggs than they do for wheat and
dog that bit you, or have him killed
you will not have hydrophobia. As
a matter of fact, Rydrophobia is a
specific germ disease; and if a person
is bitten by a dog suffering from that
disease, he is extremely likely tc be-
come inoculated, no matter what hap-
pened to the dog, and, unless he gets
Ye Pasteur treatment in time, will
As a rule now, when a person is
bitten by a dog suspected of having
rabies, health officers insist that the
dog be kept under observation for a
certain length of time, instead of be-
ing killed at once, in order to see if
the animal develops the suspected dis-
ease. Or, if some superstitious per-
son has already killed the dog, the
head, if possible, is at once secured and
examined for a “positive” or “nega-
tive” result, in order that it may be
ascertained if it is necessary for the
bitten person to take the “treatment.”
But so difficult is it to supplant an-
cient superstitions by modern science
that, all over the country, dogs which
have bitten persons are killed in the
firm belief that danger of hyropho-
bia is thereby eliminated and no fur-
ther regard is paid to the incident un-
til, in some cases, the bitten person
develops the dread disease and it is
too late for help. In the vast major-
ity of cases the dog probably did not
have hydrophobia at all and the pa-
tient would have been safe anyway.
In the other cases the patient dies as
a sacrifice to a superstition.
This superstition is merely an ex-
ample of the old fallacy of our primi-
tive ancestors, sympathetic magic. You
kill the dog of which the disease is a
part and you kill the disease. And,
by sympathy, that part of the disease
which has been transferred to the
human being, this transference hav-
ing been accomplished, according to
the theory of our ancestors, by “the
magic of contact.—Irving King.
