(Special) Research has discovered a wonder-working substance that helps correct constipation without laxatives! Doctors say most constipation occurs when waste loses moisture in the colon. To give relief, laxatives have to force action flush, irritate or distend the intestine. The new miracle substance works in a completely different way. It helps natural moisture in the colon work more effectively. Thus by working on the problem, not on you, it helps correct constipation as no laxative can. This discovery is now available under the name Regutol. It is not habit-forming. No warning on the label no prescription needed. Try Regutol you may never take a laxative again! Yet many of these people could be rehabilitated and restored to human dignity, not by complicated therapeutic procedures, but, among other things by providing good medical care and reaching out a hand of kindness toward them. Says a widow who has spent 27 of her 77 years in fortresslike Central Stale: "I make my own bed and lake care of my things and try to help some of the other ladies who need help. I suppose you could say I don't have much to live for, but you hang on to life." In Agnews State Hospital, California, a 68-year-old grandmother says: "Time is endless here. Yes, some of the old ladies talk to each other, but some just stare at the four walls. When that time comes for me, I hope I'll be dead." Hundreds of equally poignant cases could be cited ... a bedridden old lady at Richmond State in Indiana fondling a doll ... a 70-year-old spinster at Central Islip in New York puttering over a llowerbox and asking bitterly: "Did you ever see a freak watering plants?" . . . An old man at Manteno State in Illinois, struggling to remember his age and how long he'd been there, finally mumbling: "I been here a long time. ..too long..." The plight of these wretched old people disturbs many leaders in medicine, psychiatry and social welfare. Says Dr. John Cumming, New York State Deputy Commissioner of Mental Health: "The facilities and treatment for the elderly in our state! hospitals is not just inadequate, it is shocking ... an indignity to any human being." Even pushing people out of mental hospitals into nursing homes isn't always the answer, says Dr. Thomas Anderson of the National Institute of Mental Health, since such places are sometimes "appalling." He adds: "Our country has not as yet faced, let alone coped with the problems of aging." Sums up Dr. Donald P. Kenefick, director of research of the National Association of Mental Health: "We could spring at least half the old people in state mental hospitals today. We could also prevent most new admissions of old people if proper community resources, services and programs were available. They aren't available. So the mental hospitals are the patsies for an indifferent society." PARADE NOVFMBLR 10, 18 does nV awj I becomt part if (-V jiur dentureslVfc-ij Thai's EZO dental cushions.
