Typhoid Fever and Its Abortive Treatment (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Typhoid Fever and Its Abortive Treatment The objects that are sought to be accomplished by the issuance of this book are: First, to present to the members of the medical profession so much evidence of the truth of the startling declaration that typhoid fever can be aborted as will induce a large number of physicians to give antiseptic medicine a fair and faithful trial in this disease - the most destructive to adolescent life of all of the acute specific infections - a disease which is both preventable and curable, but which is not only not excluded from, but has been practically invited to invade every community, and has hitherto been allowed to pursue its course uninterrupted by any scientific or efficacious treatment second, to give such explicit direc tions as will enable all physicians to so intelligently apply the principles of antiseptic medicine to the cure of typhoid fever that they may secure for their patients the least inconvenience and suffering, the shortest duration of illness, and the lowest possible death rate third, and finally, to impress upon the minds of the members of this medical profession the enormity of the crime which is committed by all communities that pour their excrement laden sewage into our fresh water lakes and rivers, in violation of all sanitary principles, of genuine humane ness and even of common decency; to the subversion of all efforts at the prophylaxis of typhoid fever, cholera, and other diseases.
