The author has had a personal interest in ion exchange resins for more than ten years. His major contention is that all chronic degenerative diseases have as an important component in their etiology, the absorption from the intestine of small quantities of toxic chemicals.

The present monograph is an attempt to substantiate the author's premise. However, while it may have some validity in part, such an hypothesis would appear to be an over-simplification of the multi-dimensional aspects of degenerative diseases.
