'j COPY OF LAEGE PLACARD] [OFFICIALLY POSTED IN WOOLWICH. Metropolitaa Borough of Woolwich PHYSICAL DETERIOR A.TION AND ALCOHOLISM. nnHE Report o? the Ccratnittoe, presented to Parliamont by command of His Majesty, JL sfc<tes that: The abase of alcoholic stimulants is a most "potent and deadly agent of Physical deterioration; Alcoholic persons are specially liable to Tuberculosis and all inflammatory disorders Evidence wss placed before tho Committee shewing that in Abstinence is to be sought the source of muscular vigour and activity; The lunacy figures shew a large and inoieasing number of admissions of both sexeß which are due to drink. The following facts recognised by the Medical profession and placarded all over France by order of the Government, are published in order to carry out the recommendation of the Committee and to bring home to men and women the fatal effects of alcohol on physical efficiency. (1) Alcoholism is a chronic poisoning, resulting from the habitual us© of aloohol (whether as spirits, wine or beer) which may never go as far as drunkenness. (2) It is a mistake to ?ay that thoFe doiiag hard work require stimulants. As a fact no one requires alcohol as either food or tonic. (3) Alcohol is really a narcotic, dulling tho nerves like laudanum or opinro, but is more dangerous thun either in th..fe often its first effect is to weaken a man's self control while his passions are excited : hence the number of crimes which occur under its infiuenea. (4) Spirit*, as usually taken, rapidly produce alcoholism, but milder alcoholic drinks as beer, and even cider, drunk repeatedly every day produce after a time alcoholic poisoning with equal certainty. (5) Tho habit of drinking leads to the ruin o? families, the neglect of social dutiee, disgust; for work, misery, thoft and crime. Ft leans also to the hospital, for alcohol ptoduces the mest various and the most fatal diseases, including Paralysis, Insauit.y, diseases of the stomach and liver, and Dropsy. It also paves tbe way to consumption, nnd frequenters of public houses furnish a lar^e proportion of the victims of this disease. It complicates and aggravates «li acute diseases ; Typhoid Fever, Pncnmonia and Erysipelas are rapidly fatal in the subject of alcoholism. (6) The sins of alcoholic parents are vieited on the children; if these survive infancy they are threatened with I liocy or Kpilepsy, and many are carried away by Tuberculous Meningitis or Phthisis (Consumption. (7) In short, tilcoboltem is the most terrible enemy to personal health, to family happines?, and to national prosperity. By Order of the Borough Council, | h. JENKINS JONES, Mayor. 7 139 SYDNEY DAVIES, M.D, Medical Officer of Health.
