|Arnold Bennett - from Wikipedia|
Of course the public health has improved. We live longer, and apart from specific diseases, we probably suffer less. But this improvement is due not to the curative art of medicine; it is due to the application of the rules of common sense to laws and bye-laws having reference to hygiene; it is due, also, in some degree, to the increase in comfort among the masses of the people, better feeding, better housing, better education, better care of infants, more nursing, and special methods dealing with what are called 'occupational diseases'.
