The War Against Tuberculosis

Nature volume 81, pages 4849 (08 July 1909) | Download Citation



THE National Association for the Prevention of Consumption and other Forms of Tuberculosis was well advised to open its exhibition or collection of object-lessons in the Borough of Stepney. It may safely be said that the Whitechapel Art Gallery never had any company of more interested sightseers than the thousands who, at this exhibition a few weeks ago, examined and discussed death-rates, ventilation, graduated labour and the apparatus used in performing it in the treatment of consumption, apparatus for the treatment of tuberculous diseases, playgrounds, pathological specimens, back-to-back houses, overcrowding, food-stuffs and the principles of nutrition, methods of disinfection, and the like.
