The causes of the most common diseases are now well known.
This knowledge makes it possible to prevent them.
Child mortality has been drastically reduced during the present century due to the eradication of infectious diseases.
This target was reached by means of general immunization programmes and health education of the entire population.
Other diseases were eliminated by changes of nutrition habits (gout) and by active substitution of vitamins (rickets) or by administration of minerals (caries, goitre).
Diseases that are responsibIe for man not attaining his genetic life-span can only be eradicated by changing the style of living.
With transmission of modern medical experience it is practicable to promote health and to avoid diseases.
