Jaundice is a yellowing of the
skin and eyes that is caused by a increase of bilirubin in the blood. Bilirubin
a yellow-brownish substance resulting from the breakdown of old red blood
cells. If this waste product is not removed from the bloodstream by the
liver, then a backup of bilirubin in the blood occurs, producing a yellowing of
the skin and the whites of the eyes. The urine may be darker than normal,
while the stools may appear lighter. Jaundice is not a disease but an indicator
of any one of several blood or liver disorders. Among the conditions that can
cause jaundice are cirrhosis of the liver ,
pernicious anemia , hepatitis, and
hemolysis which is a abnormal destruction of red blood cells. Jaundice can also
be a sign of a blockage in the path of the bile flow, from the liver through the
bile ducts to the gallbladder and then to the intestinal tract. If the biliary
tract is obstructed, then the bile will pass back into your blood stream rather
than into the digestive system, which will cause jaundice. Sometimes, jaundice
is the result of some form of parasitic infestation
such as tapeworm or hookworm, or a bite from a flea or mosquito that carries a
viral, bacterial, or parasitic infection. It can also be caused by a tumor, a gallstone,
or other inflammation.
Doctor's Comments about Drugs

it would be bad for the fish and good for humanity."
O.W. Holmes, (Prof. of Medicine Harvard University)
"Every drug increases and complicates the patients
condition." Robert Henderson, M.D.
"In sickness the body is already loaded with impurities. By
taking drug - medicines more impurities are added, thereby the case is further
embarrassed and harder to cure." Elmer Lee, M.D.
"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

excessive X-rays. But not getting enough vitamins and minerals is just as
dangerous. Cells in your body not getting their vitamins and minerals suffer
