Excerpt from Introduction Studies in Social Hygine: A Series of Lectures Arranged by the Social Service Department of the University of Toronto for the Hamilton Social Hygiene Council

Some of the diseases from which man suffers are carried from person to person, either by actual touch or by contact with some common medium. They are called contagious, or infectious. They vary very much in severity, but are specially dangerous because of the ease with which they spread, and the difficulty of avoiding con tagion or infection. That is why many of them come in epidemics, which threaten the health of whole communities and the lives of many individuals. They seem to come in great cycles, often in changing forms, increasing or abating in violence owing to causes still obscure. But scientific knowledge in sanitation and medicine has been applied in recent years with increasing power, to the attack on their causes. This has been done by minute research into the symptoms, by tireless and skilful experiment on means to de stroy the cause, and to prevent infection. Much progress has been made in limiting the ravages of many such diseases, with a conse quent raising of the normal standard of health, and lengthening of the average span of life.

The diseases of this class which call for reduction to-day, such as typhus, tuberculosis, and the venereal diseases, syphilis and gonorrhoea, lay on mankind a very heavy burden of misery, in efficiency, sickness and death. They constitute the greatest problem of public health before the world to - day. Yet the knowledge so far gained, and increasing every day, warrants us in saying that the burden can be lightened, and the problem largely solved; though the solution involves a very far-reaching interpretation of the con ception of hygiene. To an extent as yet unknown they may be classed as preventable, and would almost certainly disappear if the conditions of life were such as are known to be favourable to health and unfavourable to the destructive organisms which prey on its weakness.
