Excerpt from Arterial Sclerosis: A Consideration of the Prolongation of Life and Efficiency After Forty

Arteriosclerosis is much more frequent than formerly. The causes for this are very many, and will be analysed in the body of the book, but it is well to warn ourselves in the beginning that two factors at least are nearly always necessary in the production Of disease, and not fix on a single cause.

There must be an underlying tendency that has prepared the soil and collected the seed, and there must be the immediate occasion that plants the seed and favours its germination. In elaborating the theory of chemical inter mediate causes that prepare the soil and provide the seed, we must not be thought to minimize the importance of nervous strain, dissipation and acute disease as breaking down the physiological defences and rendering the organism sensitive to particular molecules.

The modern age has lost much of the mental rest that came to previous generations through a respect for authority and a conviction that, whether contented or not, the average person was destined to remain in that condition of life in which he found himself. Undue ambition coming from the great opportunities of the time, together with a sensitiveness to criticism and to the ordinary knocks of life born of a protected condition of society, Often react through the nervous system upon the chemical organs of the body, preparing the way for arteriosclerosis.

The antidote has been found by those few members of modern society who take advantage of the growing interest in athletics for persons Of all ages, the custom of shorter hours, longer vacations, the custom of travel and more reason able habits of diet.
