Description:
The Medico-Social Research Board has now completed its second year as a research institute. The research projects started in its first year have become fully operational and further studies have been started. The Board considers that to carry out medico-social research it needs accurate information about causes of death and physical and psychological illness. To obtain this information it needs accurate medical certification of deaths and precise knowledge about why people are sick and what treatment they receive. There are not sicknesses, there are sick people. The main reasons for sickness to-day are in the mental and physical environment: smoking, alcohol, incorrect diet, lack of exercise and pollution of our environment. Perhaps most important of all are psychological factors.
