Description

Excerpt from Proceedings of the Third Annual Conference of State Directors in Charge of the Local Administration of the Maternity and Infancy Act (Act of Congress of November 23, 1921): Held in Washington, D. C., January 11-13, 1926 Consider the one fact of skeletal development and the elimination of rachitis in its relation to childbearing. At one time this disease was so common in England as to bear the name English disease. It is still common among many groups in all countries. Can one estimate the tremendous importance of the complete elimination of this disease in terms of its result on childbearing and in preserving the happiness, health, and lives of both mother and offspring? In the same manner the prevention of faulty nutrition, of improper hygiene, both physical and mental, and of disease would forestall many unhappy results which ensue in later life and handicap both mothers and offspring.
