BAttliioRfc.f hly ' IS. Insu
lin,' tne new remedy" rbdfabetes,
is . not , to be ; considered in . any
sense ;a& a. cure for tiat disease,
and It ,1s not-of , such jnature. as
to obviate, the necessUy of' earef ul
diet-t'for! all persons cuhdergoing
the! so-called- insulin - treatment.
These - statements . are,'' madd by
Dr. , Wlllianv S. MoCann. associate
professbf.In Johns rfopklos. Med
ical School and, associate physic
ian bf'JOhnS Hbpkihs Hospital,
under whosecare severe-cases of
diabetes" are being given1 the ' in
sulin 'treatment' at the hospital. '
Dr.iUcCann sys: ' ' r "
44nSuIiu' ls not a cure.- ?It Is,
however. In our experience a
specific remedy fbr diabetes which
haa already, saved many lives and
nas alleviated much.: suffering
from.' the disease. " Its effects are
only temporary, leaving the fun
damental condition of the disease
unchanged.' The discoverer of in
sulin, Dr. Banting, 'tas , always
been very careful not to make the
claim that Insulin cures diabetes.
The manufacturers, tell Lilly and
CO.T in the advertising matter on
insulin; are1 likewise careful not
tb make this extravagant claim.
Never before has a great medical
discovery been glvten to the world
with ' more unselfishness : on the
part - of its author, or by more
ethical manufacturers. The most
that can be said for Insulin is that
It is a specific remedy for diabetes
which restores the metabolism : to
normal as long as the treatment
Is continued. In some cases the
beneficial effect may. continue for
a short period after discontinuing
the treatment. -: Sooner or later
the patients: always return to the
condition preceding the treatment
unless it is resumed.' j f -Si
' "A great dead of harm can arise
from t careless statements in the
press to ( the effect that diet can
be' neglected durihg Insulin .treat
ments The publications of all the
men who ' have subjected - insulin
nfwiif - i'i 1 - - r 11
11 1 1
,ji i ne Kjrevon talesman il a
to scientific study 'emphasize the
fact that accurate 'control' of the
diet is more necessary with insulin,
than without it. -The reason for
this Is twofold. A glfen dds of
Insulin will cause the proper util
isation' of a fairly-definite: amount
pf t fopd. If ; more food - is - taken
than the dose of insulin provides
for, the patient will have sugar
in. the urine- again,- so that .some
of the good jeffects ot the treat
ment will have been nullified.. On
the other hand', an overdose of in
rulra may kilt the patient' by re-'
ducing' the sugar of the blood be
low that whlchr1' is necessary for
life.' This' means ;that the diet df
the patient must ' be: measured so
a to. insure, that- there wiU be the
right... amount of food taken ; to
balance, the dose of insulin .given.
The. patient, who takes insulin is
given a liberal diet, but the diet
must be accurately measured; and
the patient must take all that Is
pTescrlbea. ' - V ' ? . -i
"Estimates or the- number ' of
sufferers from diabetes vary from
half a? million to, a million - in
America. . Many of 5 these people
have the disease in a very mild
form, so that it is detected acci
dentally In life insurance examin
ations, ' Sfich people " may go for
years before serious consequences'
of the disease become apparent.
Others ' have' a mird form, which
responds readily to very moderate
reductioh of the dieti These peo
ple do net need insulin unless it
be at times when it Is necessary
to tide them over emergencies,
such as surgical operations infec
tious diseases, etc. V, From 75 - to
9 0 per cent of all cases of diabetes
can be controlled satisfactorily by
proper dieting, without- Impairing
the patients' efficiency and with
out uridue suffering- fronv restric
tion of food. For the 10 to 20
per' cent who-have the disease in
a more severe form, insulin is- a
Godsend, but is not a cure, and
accurate control of the diet must
still be maintained."

Damage- Resulting From
-.. Bruised Stock Said to Be
Less in Markets
CHICAGO, . July 20. Of the
12.435,386 head of cattle killed In
1922 in 68 of the principal mar
kets of -this country. 1.498.246
Were bruised, but the loss ot meat
from this cause averaged a half
pound a head as compared - with
a pound a head loss for beef ani
mals killed' in 1921. says a report
made public by the Illinois Hu
mane Society. s- ; ; j
The' reduction aHown tsv. CO
per cent, and is attributed to the
campaign now", on for the better
handling ot cattle' In transit and
In yards Says the report.
"As to -losses- In transit," the
report continues, "returns from
1 1 western markets from : which
the principal statistics were ob
tained show there was a slight
decrease in losses in 1922 as com
pared with 19 2 r. : This is gratify
ing tor the reason that the rail
roads, oh account of strikes and
other causes, bad a difficult pro
position to keep their service - at
anything like standard In 1921.
'".In the. bruised meat campaign
the figures as to hogs for 1922 do
not show. up' as well. ' In 1921 the
loss of meat oh account of bruises
averaged one-tenth f of a pound
each"hogv .Thii Bgrirb was based
on returns front 53 markets. How.
ever, in 1922 jwd extended the
campaign to cover 68 markets and
the estimated loss per hog, was fig-,
ured" ai a ' quarter po'uhd. It Is
believed , that the ihereased loss
occurred In the -15 new markets
where the campaign to reduce
losses had not been in fall 'swing.
