Peptic Ulcer: A New Approach to its Causation, Prevention, and Arrest, Based on Human Evolution focuses on the argument that the interference with the natural buffering of gastric acid by the food through the removal of protein in the refining of carbohydrates is the primary cause of peptic ulcer.
The book first offers information on the law of adaptation and the role of hydrochloric acid in the production of peptic ulcer and the law of adaptation and the role of stress in the production of peptic ulcer. The text then elaborates on protein-stripping in carbohydrate foods as the fundamental cause of peptic ulcer.
The publication takes look at racial incidence of peptic ulcer and explanation of the difference in the incidence of gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer. The publication also underscores the disregard of appetite as an aggravating factor in the production of peptic ulcer, heredity and peptic ulcer, and application of the argument to the prevention and arrest of peptic ulcer.
The manuscript is a dependable reference for readers interested in the study of causation, prevention, and arrest of peptic ulcer.
