A “diseased” condition develops when we fail to maintain health; it is the absence of health. Disease is not always some entity which drives out and overcomes health. The true science of conquering disease is to do so by restoring the health rather than to expect to restore the health by conquering disease.
Education in health principles was never more needed than now.

It demands the attention of all who have at heart the well-being of their fellow men.
