Children so fed, moreover, become very liable to attacks of fever and of inflammation, affecting...

Galen, one of the most distinguished of the ancient physicians, lived 140 years, and composed between 700 and 800 essays on medical and philosophical subjects ; and he was always, after the age of 28, extremely sparing in the quantity of his food. The Cardinal de Salis, Archbishop of Seville, who lived 110 years, was invariably sparing in his diet. One Lawrence, an Englishman, by temperance and labor, lived 140 years ; and one Kentigern, called...
Seite 217 - The nursery was soon entirely vacated, and the services of the nurse and physician no longer needed ; and, FOR MORE THAN TWO YEARS, NO CASE OF SICKNESS OR DEATH TOOK PLACE.
