Y i i~ i/iii You H E DR. JAMES W. BARTON =lk= About 0 The Weight Reducing Drug ~k~o7"HEN a drug will reduce weight without the individ- ual having to cut down on lris food or increase his exercise, nat- urally it is going to hecome very popular. The fact that skin erup- tions, digestive disturbances and even death tn a few eases has occurred from its use has apparently not less- ened the demand for the drug. Dr. W. W. Boardman, San Francisco, In the Journal of the American Medi- cal Association states, "I h~tve used the drug with success In a num- ber of cases. At the present tlme diuitrO- ~ ~:~ phenol is quite gener- ~~l ally accepted as an ~~i adjunct or help In the ~~i41 treatment of over- ~l~i~ weight, although among the more con- servative physicians it ~'~ Is used cautiously anti Dr Barton with a certain degree " - of fear. I myself used It in several cases with satisfactory results. However, in the last two weeks I have seen two cases of rapidly developing cataract in relatively young women and have had reports of four similar eases." Doctor Boardman then records thes~ cases : The first case used dinitruphenol for 20 montl~s, redncing her weight from 237 to 161 pounds. Within one week after the dimness oe. the eyes appeared only light and dark couhl be distin- guished. The second case used dinttrophenol for eight months, reducing her weight from 217 pounds to 165. Dinitrophe- nol was discontinued for eight monti~s anti the weight went up to 1!)8 pounds. The drug was given again for two months, when an eye examination showed beginning cataracts. Vision failed rapidly so that within a mouth there was ahuost complete loss of vision in the right eye. Other Cases Similar. The third case used dinitropt~enol from time t8 time for eight months with a satisfactory loss of weight. However her vision became dim an't wltidn -30 days had progressed to al- most complete blindness and with fully developed cataracts. The fourth case had been taking dlnltrophenol without a physician's supervision, for several months. She also has shown rapidly developing cataracts. Doctor Boardman comments as fol- lows : at As the occurrence of cataract a. this age is extremely rare and the one common factor In all four eases has been the use of dlnitrophenol, it would certainly seem that until the question of the relationship between the dlnltrophenol and the raphlly devel- oping cataracts In young women Is settled, the drug st|paid not be nsed." In the same issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, Drs. Warren D. Hornet, Richard Barr Jones, and W. W. Boardman, San Francisco, report three cases of catar- acts following the nse of. dinitrophenoL Tim case were women aged. fifty, thirty-seven, and forty respectively. They report that the age of the patients attd the absence of any other cause suggest dinltrophenol as the eanse of the formation of the cataracts a~d loss of vision. However Just how dlnitrophenoi causes the "drying" proc- ess In the lens of ~e eye Is not definitely known but Is being investi- PIERCED SKULLS OF DEAD PUZZLE Why certain Indians of bored neat tmles in the skull i leg bones of some of their a problem still without a good to the answer, Dr. W.
