The terrible conditions during the industrial revolution and the impact it had on the general health and life expectancy of individuals was shocking. in 1842 in Manchester, for example, the life expectancy of a member of the gentry or a professional was 38 years, whereas a worker, had that of only 17.

Until the first quarter of the 19th century most forms of public medical assistance were voluntary, provided mainly by charitable organisations, idealistic doctors and clergymen, Quaker businessmen and other non-conformists. It was not until the outbreaks of large scale Infectious Diseases in the 1830s, such as cholera and typhus, that the government and local councils started paying attention to the appalling conditions in the slums and the grave risks posed by the overcrowding in substandard housing, by contaminated wells, lack of a sewage system etc.
The solutions to these problems seem obvious to us, but we must remember that little was known about diseases, bacteria, viruses and infections at that time.

But even discovering that didn't bring a change anytime soon.
