The National Memorial. THE FIGHT AGAINST CONSUMPTION. This terrible white man's scourge, unfortunately so deadly in Wales, is at last to be confronted with an organised attack. The beautiful counties of Cardigan. Carmarthen and Carnarvon are among the blackest spots in the whole of England and Wales. Out of the total number of males who died from consumption in Carnarvonshire in 1909, 60 per cent. were under 40 years of age, and, out of the total number of females who died from the same disease, 75 per cent under 4U. The chart below shows that out of 100 men who die of consumption the greatest number die between the ages of 25 to 55, the working period of life when men should be in their prime, of greatest help to these dependent on them, and to their fellow men and women. CONSUMPTIONâA Disease of the PRIME of LIFE. MALES. 23 out of every hundred dying from consump- tion die between 25-35. 22 out of every hundred dying from consump- tion die between 35â45. 19 out of every hundred dying from consump- tion die between 45-55. 64 out of every hundred dying from consump- tion die between 25-55. Out of every three deaths from all causes between the ages of 20 to 45 years one dies from consumption. The heavy black line in the above chart shews how the number of deaths from consumption is relatively small up to about 20 years of age, but from then on the death-rate rises at a fearful pace until the greatest height is reached at about 25 years of age, and it is then maintained for some years until about 45, when, as the line shews by taking a downward course, the death rate diminishes steadily until we find it in those people of 65 years and over about the same as in young children under 10 years eld. -40.
