WHY ACID STOfflACHS ARE DANGEROUS. SCIENTIFIC REPORTS, May : —Acid in llie 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 inten tionally swallows hydrochloric acid, but it is often present in large <|uanti ties as the result of food fermentation in the stomach resulting from the chemical action, which ho frequently follows the eating of the daintiest and most tasty foods or the indulgence in any form of alcoholic stimulants, in cluding beer, wine, liqueurs, etc. This fermentation causes pain, uneasiness, and discomfort because ol the acid which burns like a red-hot iron, and j the formation of gas which distends the ttomach. causing shortness of breath and palpitation of the heart.
