Good Health: The Possibility, Duty, And Means Of Obtaining And Keeping It (Classic Reprint)

    Excerpt from Good Health: The Possibility, Duty, and Means of Obtaining and Keeping It

    The result will, in all likelihood be, that, with Gods blessing on the work, an incalculable amount of physical suffering will be averted, and a large accession of good, in all senses of the word, will be obtained. Each successive generation will occupy a position, as regards health, beyond that of its predecessor, and will leave to its children a still greater immunity from the bodily ills that afflict humanity.

    The health of communities may be improved, without their having any intelligent apprehension of the reasonableness of the means employed; cities and towns may be drained and ventilated, and both rich and poor participate in the advantage, without one of the inhabitants understanding how the benefit was brought about. But the utmost good that can be effected by wise legislation, will be less than each individual may enjoy, if he will but cooperate with it. Acts of Parliament never will come into operation within the walls of peoples houses, or regulate their personal habits. Personal good health must depend on so much that can neither be prescribed nor enforced by public authority, that no kind of information is more immediately important, than that which may induce each to provide for himself and his family the greatest amount of health which his circumstances render possible. While the necessary instruction was not accessible, the duty of being in good health could not be felt as it now may be and ought to be.
