Why Acid Stomachs Are Dangerous. Scientic Reports, May.—Acid in the stomach is dangerous and frequently fatal, because acid from its corrosive nature has a natural tendency to destroy the mucous lining of the stomach itself. No one intentionally swallows hydro chloric acid, but it is often present in large quantities as the result of food fermentation in the stomach resulting from the chemical action, which so frequently follows the eating of the daintiest and most tasty foods or in -the" indulgence in •auy form of alcoholic stimulants, including beer, wine, liqueurs, etc. This fermentation causes pain, uneasiness and discomfort because the acid which burns like a red hot iron, aucFthe formation of gas which distends the stomach, caus ing shortness of breath and palpi tation of the heart. The trouble being entirely due to the unnatural condition of stomach contents, and not in any way to the fault of the stomach itself, physicians have adopted with marvellous success the plan of neu...
