Page 101 - The object of disinfection is to prevent the extension of infectious diseases by destroying the specific infectious material which gives rise to them.

Page 101 - ... and practical sanitation is now based upon the belief that the infecting agents in all kinds of infectious material are of this nature. Disinfection, therefore, consists essentially in the destruction of disease germs. Popularly, the term "disinfection" is used in a much broader sense.
