The Watermelon

[blocks in formation]

At one time in this country watermelon was believed to be the carrier of cholera morbus. It was claimed that many cases of this dread disease could be traced to the eating of watermelon, and as long as this superstition was abroad and accepted, a lot of people ate watermelon expecting to be on their backs with cholera morbus in less than a week.

Finally, a Dr. Tanner made an analysis of watermelon and found it to consist almost entirely of water, sweetened with a little sugar. He declared it to be the about the lightest food that could be taken into the human

This proved such a good advertisement for the watermelon that it has ever since had a place on the tables of even the strictest dieticians.

It has often occurred to the writer of this that it would be a good idea to change the greeting "How are you?" to “You're looking well today!”

We must all admit that the less we think about our bodily ailments the bettre we feel, and that our physical condition is largely dependent on our mental attitude.

There is no field of activity of the ductless gland which is more important than their influence on the varying metabolic processes of the body. The purpose of this paper is to discuss briefly one of these directions of glandular activities, namely, the relation of ductless glands to sugar metablism.

I became especially interested in this phase of the subject as a result of two cases reported by Dr. J. C. O'Day, one of which I had the opportunity of following in some detail. These two cases were clinically typical cases of diabetes mellitus plus exopthalmic goitre. In both, the diabetes had preceded the development of the outspoken goitre symptoms, and in both, all the symptoms, both those of diabetes and those of exopthalmic goitre, were cured by the operation. Subsequently I saw a somewhat similar case. I do not know how long the diabetes had existed, but some grade of hyperthyroidism had been present for a long time. The patient had long been nervous, excitable, with a tremor of the hands and some prominence of the eyeballs. Under a severe strain for some time she developed a typical, marked exopthalmic goitre, and a marked diabetes. The urine contained 8 per cent sugar, and it was difficult to reduce it by dietetic means. Thyroid operation was performed. Very promptly there was a marked subsidence of the goitre symptoms, and there followed a gradual subsidence of the sugar excretion. The sugar did not
