To the Editor:
—Your editorial in regard to the danger from absorption of nitrites in the administration of large doses of bismuth subnitrate is very much to the point. To obviate this danger I have been employing the hydrated bismuth oxid for the past year with good results. The ingestion of this compound results in bismuth and water after passing into the intestines and is harmless even in large doses such as are required for Roentgenologic work.
