Howard Obesity Ointment

The application is simplicity itself. You merely apply the ointment to the part you wish reduced, then literally, "wash the fat away" without injury to the most delicate skin.

I can't find any description of what was in this ointment, but it sounds like something out of a horror story.

Seems like a 1092-page magazine would be difficult to work with.

I'm going to assume the pages were numbered through the whole volume.

Is that a before picture or an after picture?

When I searched for this product, I didn't find out what was in it either. However, my search engine took me right to studies on file at NIH that say aminophylline cream actually does work without toxicity.

Lots of them at Amazon when you search for aminophylline cream. One Amazon Choice is "Buns of Steel", which I'm seriously thinking of ordering.
