Rest for Consumption – Strength Magazine – January, 1927

The “Great White Plague” continues year after year to reap its harvest of human lives, and by the end of the year numberless thousands will have passed into the great beyond, victims of this terrible scourge, which still continues to be a problem to the most learned and skillful physicians the world over. In the United States thousands die each year, many of whom could be saved, were they to use common sense in recognizing the dangers of procrastination and follow sane methods in combating the savages of this dread disease, consumption.
