SEES CIVIC HEALTH
NEW BRITAIN DAILY HERALD, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1927.
9 , I
Diseases Directly Dependent on
This Factor
New York. Oct. :s ( VP) The
effect of dp-lit upon public health
was definc-rl in startling terms by
lr. Thomas V. Wood, professor of
public health at Columbia univer
sity in an interview granted the
I nited I'nss today.
"Public health." Dr. Wood declar
ed, "is directly determinable by the
general correspondence of the
weights of the individuals to scien
tific standards of weight charts." Dr.
Wood declared that a few excep
tions would not affect the generaliz
ation of his statement to any appre
ciable degree. "Social disease, tu
berculosis, consumption, cancer and
a few other diseases are such suff
ered by so few persons," lie said,
"that the effect upon the, condition
of general public health is practic
ally negligible."
Dr. Wood's statements were given
in conjunction with an article which
lie has written for a new volume
called "Your Weight, and How to
Control It." to be published tomor
row. In elaborating his sttaement,
iie said, "A slitht degree of over
or under weight tor a person does
not indicate that he. is not hrnlthv.

Leah I,."
Dr. .od supported the state
ments of oi in r professional men
who.: articles at.ji.ar in the book
by siating that weight reduction
slltuled an actual menace. to the
country. He cited example ot large
groups of high sehunl girls between
the ages of 12 and l who are to
day foregoing luncheon or one of
the other meals in their efforts to
attain or maintain a "boyish" form.
Such practices, he declares, are serv
ing only to undermine the. general
health nt the country, and seriously
jeopardi.e these girls' future chances
for motherhood.
