THE BROADWAY STOMACH by Dr. Joseph F. Montague


Email this review


Tentative title for a book on what urban living and urban pace can do to the digestion, in the way of ulcers, acidity, indigestion, gastritis, dyspepsia, biliousness, gallstones, colitis, constipation, cancer, appendicitis, etc. How to recognize symptoms and what to do about them (dangerous knowledge for the layman); diets; doctoring only by physicians (that's better), hospitalization, allergies, alcohol, nicotine and other stimulants. He runs the gamut -- and discusses all balancing aspects of a healthy life somewhat breezily. Revealing reading on how you feel as you do and why. A hypochondriac could work up some fine new troubles, though he advocates care and intelligence.
