"Many people think that by boiling water they purify it. This is a mistake. The germs of disease are partially killed but the decaying carcasses of the germs remain to be taken into the system. Water cannot be purified by filtering it."

--A. Victor Segno,
"How to Live 100 Years,"
Los Angeles, 1903
