Punch,  15 (1848), 168.

Physic for the "Morning Post"





Sanitation, Medical Treatment, Disease, Public Health

    Attacks the Morning Post for claiming that slaughtermen are so used to living in filth that they are immune from disease, and that being 'too full of health [...] their disorders have a tendency to run into inflammation which cannot be reduced'. Points out that the aim of healthy inflammation is 'subsidence' and claims: 'atmosphere less foul, disease less malignant'. Punch feels strongly that it should rectify the Morning Post's 'erroneous medical views'.
