POINT OUT DANGER IN
FOOD. DRINK EXCESSES
Dr. Copeland, Commenting on the Report That
Diabetes Is on Increase, Agrees That General Die
tary Knowledge Will Help Prevent This Disease.
Bv ROYAI. S. COPELAND, M. I).
United States Senator from New York.
Former Commissioner of Health, Hew York City■
IN a recent report of n great life insurance company appears this
significant statement: “It Is our best judgment that diabetes is
on the increase, in spite of the use of insulin.’’
“But why?’’ you will ask. “Because of the dietary excesses prac
ticed by tha American people.
This report shows that for the first three
months of 1929. the death rate from diabetes
iras in excess of 23 for each 100,000 of the popu
lation. It ia feared that this year will show the
highest percentage of death* ever recorded from
this cause. ....
Overindulgence in food and drink is regarded
as the chief factor in producing the disease.
Hut bore la a comforting statement: “This is
one of the diseases which, among older people,
may be prevented by popular education."
Nature ia more than generous. She Is even
prodigal in bestowing her gifts. She has equipped
the body with organs and parts that are capable
of supplying all the digestive substance* that are
needed by reasonably sensible human beings. She
even prepares for moderate excesses.

Although his body was useless, hh
