In the course of this thesis one will show that the activities of radiations are not the result of haphazard occurence: it will be clearly demonstrated that definite principles are involved in the production of profound beneficial effects on the organism. One will explain his conception of the biological activity of the rays in the synthesis of vitamins in the skin, in the production of pro-hormones, and in the regulation of the various metabolic processes of the body: this will involve descriptions of the different bodily elements in their chemical activities and inter-activities.
