Abstract

The object of this essay is to reduce the signification of the words "susceptibility," "predisposition" and "heredity." In the progress of bacteriological knowledge, there is too little attention paid to the organic conditions of health, and the resisting power of the system in conflict with antagonistic forces.

Latitude, elevation, nature of the soil, degree of cultivation, relative position in regard to mountains, forests, rivers, etc., and general aspect of the neighborhood, all modify the condition of man, and prove his adaptability by such effects as serve to make him understand his
