Excerpt from The Theory and Practice of Hygiene The chapters dealing with foods and beverages have been strengthened by the incorporation of more modern conceptions as to the theory of diets and values of the various food-stuffs. The same idea has dominated the handling of such subjects as habitations, schools, hospitals, drainage, and the disposal of sewage. The chapter dealing with this latter topic has been rewritten, and it is hoped will be found sufficiently Clear both as to theory and practice. The chapter on the disposal of the dead is new, and that on the offensive trades has been extended. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
