Naturevolume 79page6 (1908) | Download Citation



A CONSIDERABLE practice in different parts of England and Wales has enabled Mr. Dutton to form an idea of the causes and remedies of the physical deterioration of which we hear so much nowadays., The book he has produced is a sensible little brochure, remarkably free from technicalities, and easily understood by the man in the street. It deals with the elementary questions of physiology which underlie the teachings of hygiene, and gives a good deal of practical advice on the measures to be adopted (diet, fresh air, exercise, pure water, disinfection, and the like) which would ensure the health of the people and the improvement of the race.
