FIGHTING DISEASE GERMS
There is a popular idea that mott
sickness is caused by a germ of the
disease finding entrance to our bodies
through the food we eat, the water or
milk we drink or the air wo breathe.
This is true as far as It goes but it is
also true that disease germs are enter
ing otir bodies every day without caus
The reason for this Is that there
are forces within the body that are con
stantly fighting these disease germs
and it is only when this defence is
weakened that the germs get the upprr
hand and we become II1. One of the
most powerful of these forces that
work for health Is rich, . red bloofl.
Good, healthy blood Increases the re
sistance of the body to the diseases that
are always threatening.' it is easier to
keep up this resistance by taking Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, eating proper
food, avoiding articles of food that do
not agree with us and getting plenty
ot fresh air day and night, than it is
to cure disease after it gets a foot
hold. Keep up the resistance of your
body to disease by these tonic pills,
which you can get at any drug store,
and you will avoid much slcknefi.
