HEALTH BULLETIN CITY OF ELY by OWEN W, PARKER. M.D Health Commissioner BULLETIN NO. IL Cancer and the War. (By the American Society for the Control of Cancer.) Up to July, 1919, 76,433 American soldier were killed or died of wounds or disease in the Great War. During the two years of our participation in the conflict it is estimated that 180,- 000 people died of cancer in the Un ited States. Three years of activity previous to the American interven tion has made the Society for the Control of Cancer one of the recog nized special health agencies in the national field. Many of its leading members rendered prominent service in the war and with the return of peace they are again contributing of their time and knowledge to the cam paign against a disease which has for centuries held out against all attack as one of the chief enemies of man kind. Yet although cancer still de fies our efforts to understand its ult imate cause/ much is known about the conditions, such as habits of life, predisposing factors and the various forms of chronic irritation, under which the disease arises. If this knowledge were more widely dissem inated and utilized the mortality from cancer could undoubtedly be much reduced. The object of the Society is to promote the practical utilization of this present knowledge. Mother*’ Club Meeting.
