This chapter discusses Irving Fisher's quest in seeking treatment for tuberculosis, an illness then known to be caused by a germ, and his eventual cure and crusade for a healthier living across the country. Originally an economist, Fisher's calling turned out to be in the field of health. In 1898, he contracted tuberculosis; and his five-year battle with the disease changed him into a health advocate. Fisher believed that purity of diet, regimen, and spirit, were the keys to a long, healthy, and happy life.
