I think I have thus refuted all the arguments with which doctors attempt a contradiction of the fact, that they use poisons as remedies. Should I hear any new arguments of this kind, I shall submit them to criticism also. L. ON THE EFFECTS OF COLD WATER ON THE HUMAN ORGANISM IN GENERAL. PREFATORY REMARKS. The word cold, as regards water in its general relation to man, comprehends a considerable scale of degrees. It is seldom colder than 0 of Reaumur, as it then becomes ice. Above this, in higher degrees of heat, it must, in relation to the human body, be called, in common parlance, cold, so long as it does not reach blood-heat (98 F.), and warm when it exceeds this.

We shall call water up to 54 cold, betwixt this and 77 chilled (abgeschrecktes), and that above 98 warm. DISCUSSION OF THE SUBJECT. In explaining the effects of water under. 77, we have to consider, first, the coldness, and, secondly, the chemical composition of water. 1. Cold in a high degree, and long continuance, has on the human organization a fatal effect, by absolute deprivation of heat. In a less degree, and shorter duration, it effects a partial abduction of heat, which is brought again into equilibrium by the organism through adduction of blood to the cooled part. To produce this equilibrium an abnormally strong afflux of blood to the cooled part is necessary. The first operation of cold, therefore, is the expulsion of the blood from the part of the body exposed to it. The reaction of the'Organism produ...
