An artical entitled "Why Not Teach Physiology in our Elementary Schools?" in issue number 3 of this periodical reads; "'It has been objected... that to teach any one to take care of his own health, is sure to do harm, by making him think of this and the other precaution, to the utter sacrifice of every noble and generous feeling, and to the certain production of peevishness and discontent. The result, however, is exactly the reverse; and it would be a singular anomaly in the constitution of the moral world were it otherwise'... It is ignorance and not knowledge which renders an individual full of fancies and apprehensions" (May 1859).
