Narcotics, Medical Treatment, Health, Nutrition
Contains some 'rare good news' for 'habitual smokers': M Armand has informed the Académie des Sciences, Paris, that 'common watercress' can be used to make a 'sure antidote to nicotine'. The writer explains that his life has been 'made miserable' by his friends and family trying to stop him from smoking, but resolves that whenever he now buys tobacco he will also purchase some watercress and thus be spared the fatal consequences of smoking.
