There's no true cure yet, but careful and timely treatment "can prevent severe crippling in most cases," it says in a free booklet, "Arthritis Quackery Today."

While diagnosis has improved, nevertheless there seenis to have been a real and-four-fold increase in stomach and duodenal ulcers, says, the Health Insurance Institute, New York. Nearly three times more men thaii women develop ulcers.
