Rickets being such a common disease to which young children of many countries are prono, and the variety of tissues it affects, make it a subject of great importance and interest. The causation of the condition, even at the present time, is still a problem that is not apparently clearly solved, as so many authorities on the subject hold widely different opinions. Recent experiments seem to show that lack of sufficient exercise is an important factor in experimental rickets in animals. And this is of great interest in view of the generally accepted doctrine that rickets is duo to dietetic and hygienic errors.
