Lengthening of Human Life In This
' " Country One-third. '
I wish to submit for publication In
the Eagle some facts culled from an
article in "American Health," the
official organ of the American Health
Tbe article Is an epitome oi Prof.
Irving Fisher's report as a member of
tbe National Conservation Commis
sion. Eighteen medical experts aided
in the preparation of his report. His
conclusion is startling, "that the pre
vention, even In a moderate degree,
of tbe preventable diseases, would
lengthen human life in this country
fully one-third and possibly much
Mortality rate varies greatly at
different times and places. In India
the average duration of life is less
than twenty-five years, as compared
with fifty-two for sweeden. In Europe
statistics show that the average du
ration of human life has increased
in thrree and one half centuries from
20 to 40 years and that it is now in
creasing faster than ever. During
the seventeenth and eighteenth cen
furies the average increased nearly
eight years, from 1800 to 1S50 more
than four years, and from 1830 to 1900
more than eight years. During the
latter half of the nineteenth century
in Prussia, where medical and sani
I tary science has reached Its highest
I development the average length of hu
I man life wa3 lengthened thirteen and
one-half years. In this country the
average is lengthening fourteen years
Of 130.000 deaths each year from
tuberculosis more than three-fourths
are unnecessary. More than four
fifths of the deaths and illness from
typhoid fever could be avoided, while
the sanitary measures which will pre
vent one death from typhoid will pre
vent two or three deaths from other
Pure water, pure milk and pure air,
if used throughout the nation, would
alone lengthen life by an average of
eight years. There are at all times
about three million people in the
United States seriously ill, of whom
.100,000 are consumptives. Most of
this illne-s is preventable. The fore
going figures are based merely on
Knowledge already gained and tested.
The average duration of human life
In this country is now forty-five year
It could easily be extended to si;:;,
years. The financial gain in thus
prolonging life would be immense.
The gain to morality in obedience
to known laws of health would be
incalculable. The outlook for a vast
improvement in health conditions is
