Dusty Air and Ill Health

Excerpt from Dusty Air and Ill Health: A Study of Prevalent Ill Health and Causes Ill health is a topic that concerns all of us. If we do not have ill health ourselves there are sure to be relatives or friends to give us concern. In order to suffer one need not be sick. An observant patient told me there are two classes of people whom one can always interest. First, those who have saved a little money and want to know how to invest it safely so it will bring in some returns. Second, those who have not the best of health and want to know how to better it. These two classes will exist as long as human society lasts. It is generally admitted that ill health, and particularly chronic ill health, is one of the great causes of misery and of poverty. We should try to discriminate between ill health and disease. Few men living under unsanitary surroundings, as found in cities and towns, or who occasionally come in contact with them, are wholly free from symptoms of ill health. As a matter of fact, ill health (that is symptoms) affects many of us constantly. Well-defined disease on the other hand occurs only at long intervals, indeed may not appear until near the close of life. Moreover well-defined specific diseases are as a rule readily diagnosed by the skilled physician, while in the case of many common ills diagnoses vary greatly. An old chronic is apt to get all sorts of diagnoses, including that of imaginary ill. To what extent shall we ignore minor ills or symptoms? To what extent shall we heed them and indeed study them and find out the reason or cause? (If the "old chronic" relies solely on the medical profession for relief he is apt to be disappointed - he must study himself.)
