Destruction of the thyroid gland sometimes causes a gradual deterioration in physique, to such an extent that the victim's appearance is so altered that they are unrecognizable to friends who have not seen them for some time. In the past, before the paramount influence of this gland wsis known, its complete removal was found to result in an arrest of the vital processes and great changes in the appearance, which showed it may evolve a race of giants or of pigmies, symetrically formed, or of cretins and freaks with broad, heavy hodies. flail-like feet and waddling gait.

Shepherd has reported that where goitre is prevalent he has found in new born infants thyroid enlargement of sufficient size to cause difficult labor in child bearing. The above are some of the results caused by affections of the thyroid gland and recognized by intelligent physicians.

What are we going to do about it? Delay allows a more thorough entrenchment of the goitre germ in our bodies. We cannot run away from it and leave it behind. Krom its prevalence in the province we cannot claim that the body of a single person is free from the germ. If the people of Alberta today were transported to ideal healthy surroundings and propagated on strictly eugenic lines, It would require at lease six generations of posterity to repair the damage already done to us by the goitre germ and bring the rnne back to standard.
