And this may not only admoniih us , how we tamper with Purgative Medicines upon every flight occafion , bccaufe the Benefit we may receive by them , may not at all compenfate the Injuries received by a Difufe , or Remiffion of other natural Evacuations at the fame Time ; as this alfo cautions us againft frequent Blood - letting , it alfo ihews us how perfons grow in their Bulk thereupon , bccaufe leifening the tity perfpired , leflens the perfpiring Paflages , and increafes die Matter retained . .
