STOMACH TROUBLE DUE TO ACIDITY. SO SAYS EMINENT SPECIALIST. [Newspaper Article] — Glengarry, Toongabbie and Cowwarr Journal and Central Gippsland Reporter — 20 February 1914
STOMACH TROUBLE DUB TO ACIDITY. SO SAYS EMINENT SPECIAL IST.' So-called stomach troub'.e3, such as indigestion, wind, stomach ache ana inability to retain food, in stead ot indicating that the sto mach is out ot order, are in nine cases out of ten simply evidence that fermentation is taking place in the food contents ot the sto mach, causing the formation of gas and acids. Wind distends the sto mach, and causes that lull, op pressive feeling, sometimes known as' heartburn, while the acid irri tates and inflames the delicate lin ing of the stomach. The stomach, however, is not the fault. ? The trouble lies entirely in the fermen ting food. Such fermentation is unnatural, and acid fermentation is not only unnatural, but may involve the most serious consequences if not prevented. To prevent br stop food fermentation of the contents ot the stomach, and to neutralise the acid, and render it bland and harmless, halt a teaspontul of bisuraeta magnesia, probably the most elective and best a...

Hundreds of acres of grass and fencir^ £tav«i been destroyed, whilst the quan tity of seed lost is enormous.
