This work, by the author of "The Production and Handling of Clean Milk," was written for the public. It opens with a foreword by Charles Mayo, and important subjects throughout the book are introduced by authorities in various fields, who commend the work to the public. The opening chapters discuss tea, coffee, alcohol and drugs, and devote space to an extended consideration of personal hygiene. There is a chapter on the prevention and cure of cancer and one on sexual hygiene and diseases. Prevention of the diseases of childhood is especially well treated. The book is well indexed and attractively bound.
