"My gums are sore and I have
a very poor piece of bridge, work
on my teeth. I went to another
dentist and he tells me my teeth
are all bad. I asked him to fill
the decayed teeth and he refused,
saying that they would all have
to come out before long. I want
ed them taken out at once, but
he said to keep them as long as
possible. Here I am with a whole
mouth of decayed teeth, clogged
up with foodstuff. I am willing
to have the teeth out but the den
tist refuses. What can be his
reason? MRS. S."
I am at a loss for an explana
tion, Mrs. E., for a mouthful of
decayed teeth can undoubtedly be
the cause of the bad taste in your
mouth, poor appetite and loss of
weight, and these symptoms will
not become beter until you have
your mouth fixed up. However,
it is not advisable to have all the
teeth out at once.
Your symptoms shew a consid
erable degree of toxemia, or pois
oning. You need a check-up by
a competent physician to be sure
they are due solely to your teeth.
We have a pamhlet on reducing
and gaining which you may have
by observing column rules. .
"I can never satisfy my hunger.
I am always craving for some
thing or other, even after a hearty
meal. Above all things It must
be sweets. Therefore, I am over
weight. I had diabetes four years
ago and my friends tell me I am
starting it up again. -I feel al
right, but would you advise me
to go to my doctor for advice?
Your friends are right, J, The
fact that you had diabetes before
shows that your pancreas was dis
abled and you have probably dis
abled it again with your unwise
eating. I certainly advise you to
go to your physician, J., pronto,

It isn't hunger you are expert,
encing. It Is an abnormal appe

giving in to it. There never was
a truer saying than "The appetite
grows for what it feeds on." Your
craving for sweets is comparable
to the craving for alcohol and so
you must eurb it.
