In discussions of industrial reforms of a sanitary nature, which, in addition to the good effect they are aimed to have on public health, often bring with them also far-reaching economic disturbances, it is the peculiar duty of physicians and sanitarians to point out the extent to which particular reforms are indicated by the present state of scientific knowledge of the problems involved. Unless reforms and regulations of this general character are based on sound knowledge, it may be assumed fairly that, if carried into effect, they will result in undue economic disturbance and loss.
