New light on the relation of housing to health

| Britten, R.H.

EXTRACT: Good housing is important. It is, I believe, the right of all persons. It would be their right whether or not their health were seriously affected. It is doubly their right since their health is seriously affected. For, just because we are not able to evaluate the precise influence of the various elements of bad housing on the occurrence of disease, we are not entitled to come to the negative position that there is no influence.
