Of course it >?oes without saying
that the heaviest artillery of our fu
ture warfare against disease will be
directed toward its prevention rather
than its cure. The beat and only
radical cure of disease consists in
preventing it* spread and wiping out
Ute conditions which alone render its
uistence possible ? poor food, dirtj
water, had drainage, dark and ill
ventilated house*. v ?
Mora and mere of our energy and
brain power will be devoted to the
cheerful, positive task of keeping oui
bodies so strong and wholesome and
vigorous that the}' can defy disease,
instead of patching them up aftei
they are sick.
