is an inflammation of the epididymis, a structure located along the back of the
testicle. Newly formed sperm cells pass from the testis, where they are
produced, into the epididymis, where they spend ten to twenty days,
continuing to grow and mature. When the sperm cells are capable of

"sperm duct" to the seminal vesicles, where they are held until
ejaculation. The epididymis is a long but tightly coiled tube. If one of
these tiny tubes were stretched out straight, it would measure from about 13 to
20 feet in length. The earliest symptom of epididymitis is swelling that occurs
on the back of one or both testicles, where the epididymides are situated.
The affected area becomes hot, tender, and very painful. As the swelling

"In sickness the body is already loaded with impurities. By

"The necessity of teaching mankind not to take drugs and
medicines, is a duty incumbent upon all who know their uncertainty and injurious
effects; and the time is not far distant when the drug system will be
abandoned." Charles Armbruster, M.D.

dangerous. Cells in your body not getting their vitamins and minerals suffer
both DNA and mitochondrial damage. These cells under a microscope look like they
have been hit with radiation. This type of damage may cause you to age faster
