Lee believes that the sanitarian can gain intelligent cooperation only by instruction of the public. In this book he discusses heredity and environment; food; air; exercise and work; light and the eyes; the hygiene of the nervous system; communicable, air-borne, contact, insect-borne and ingestive diseases; milk; sewage disposal; occupational diseases, and sexual hygiene. While the book is designed for lay readers, physicians will find it well worth reading. It should be of benefit to those who wish to keep well and help others in their community to do the same.
