VIAVI AND CANCER.
When we carefully study the book "Viavi Hygiene" and
we reach the section devoted to tumors, we first learn the
depth of ignorance in which all the scientific world are,
except the promoters of this junk. No longer need the
British Medical Association expend money, or its savants
waste time in trying to find the cause of cancer. Let Har-
vard University terminate the existence of its cancer com-
mission. These are all but foolish children groping in the
dark in the effort to find the cause of one of the saddest
afflictions. The promoters of Viavi have known it for
years. The success with which they have kept their won-
derful knowledge from the scientific world is no less than
the modesty they display in setting forth the facts in this
greatest of all books. Listen, if you have tears, prepare
to part with them now: "The cause of these growths
(tumors), which by inspiring terror drive so many women
to a premature grave by way of the operating table, is so
simple a thing as a poor circulation of the blood. Tumors
are caused by a stagnation of venous blood. This important
discovery on our part, has swept away the mist that has
always surrounded this subject and enabled us to accom-
plish the most remarkable cures. Ovarion tumors, whether
inside the cavity, in the walls or outside the walls; tumors
of the vagina and fallopian tubes; cystic or fibriod tumors
of all kinds in all parts of the body, have been treated suc-
cessfully by the Viavi method."
The great State of California must feel proud of these
gentlemen, when it realizes that they have accomplished
a thing that all the rest of the civilized and scientific world
has failed to attain. For it has been their wonderful dis-
covery that has drawn so many sheckels from the pockets
of the poor, suffering women in an anxious persuit of health.
