Advancing health through science, education and medicine
Fowler, O. S., Physiology, Animal and Mental: Applied to the Preservation and Restoration of Health of Body, and Power of Mind, 26th ed., New York: Fowler and Wells, 1847.
Exercise promotes digestion, circulation, respiration, perspiration & sleep. By enhancing respiration, exercise augments the amount of oxygen & carbon consumed, indeed of all the materials derived from food and breath & also greatly increases the expulsion of all noxious matter from the system in the form of phlegm, perspiration, and respiration. Labor quickens the actions of the bowels & the digestive process generally. Labor enhances & augments life & all its pleasures & powers. Muscular action promotes every function & power, mental and physical.
