Many people do not even know of the existence of the public health officer but benefit at every turn from his activities. In Liverpool, a team of physicians, inspectors and laboratory workers watch over the health of the city's inhabitants, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.
Every day the public health men visit markets, warehouses, retail shops and slaughterhouses. Samples of every product intended for human consumption are regularly taken and examined.
