After this experience the industrious investigator was quite satisfied that an acid factor was present in cancer patients, both in the tumour itself and in the circulating blood. 98 Quesnay, on the other hand, felt than when 'acrimony' was not a product of fermentation but was derived from silent or incomplete putrefaction, it would chemically be alkalescent or alkaline.
According to current opinion, such 'acrimony' could be a local product of coagulating fluids in decay within the mammary gland, or - which was regarded as less likely - might proceed from a wrong composition of body juices in general, or enter the blood from the outer world by way of spiced food.
