LAXATIVES ARE NOT THE ANSWER
Laxatives and cathartics are "big business". This is evident in the prevalence of constipation.What happens when one takes such laxatives and cathartics? The result is usually the ejection of debris from the bowel. But why did this take place? Simply because the colon has become so irritated expelling the offending laxative that anything else that was loose went with it. We have found that the use of laxatives and cathartics are not only habit forming but decidedly destructive to the membranes of the intestines. Laxatives and cathartics disturb the normal rhythm of the excretory organs, which will sooner or later rebel. That is why so many people start with mild laxatives and soon graduate to cathartics before they reach the point of no return. Be prudent, be wise, and to quote an old familiar saying - an ounce of prevention is indeed worth a pound of cure.
