The Roots of Industrialization in Pre-Industrial Society Out of this traditional and apparently unchanging pre-industrial life grew, surprisingly, the seeds of modern industry and society. Although most people lived in the country, cities flourished as early as the 13th century in Northern Italy, and later in Holland, Belgium, and England.

      In fact, the early industrial revolution saw quite a few drops in population numbers across cities. This is because of the lack of sanitation, sewage, and knowledge about diseases and prevention. The second saw the population swell a hundredfold to about five hundred million people over the next eight thousand years, following the domestication of plants and animals and the invention of agriculture and animal herding. In Malthus's lifetime, early in the industrial revolution, it doubled again to .

      The origin of the population health approach is an historic debate over the relationship between economic growth and human health. In Britain and France, the Industrial Revolution disrupted population health and stimulated pioneering epidemiological studies, informing the early preventive public health by: The Industrial Revolution Begins in England () the first modern economist, believed this was a key reason for England’s early success. In , in his famous book An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, he wrote that “Good roads, canals, and navigable rivers, by diminishing the expense of carriage, put.

During the first Industrial Revolution, Britain experienced massive changes including scientific discoveries, expanding gross national product, new technologies, and architectural the same time, the population changed—it increased and became more urbanized, healthy, and educated.

This nation was forever transformed for the better. Campbell, B.

Unsanitary housing, overcrowding and poor drainage systems contributed to the spread of disease. Thomas McKeown (–) was a British physician, epidemiologist and historian of medicine.

In his short but authoritative study, Roy Porter examines the impact of disease upon the English and their responses to it before the widespread availability and public provision of medical care.

Professor Porter incorporates into the revised second edition new perspectives offered by recent research into provincial medical history, the history of childbirth, and women's studies in the social. When mortality was low, as in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, and again afterand the population was able to grow, economic growth was encouraged.

When the disease environment was harshest, as it was between andeconomic stagnation was the consequence. •During cholera, a highly contractible disease caused by a bacterial infection of the intestine, spread throughout Britain attacking all classes.

Cholera is transmitted through contaminated food or water. The feces of those who were infected by the disease. The McKeown thesis, based on detailed studies of infectious disease mortality in England and Wales before and after the Industrial Revolution, holds that the historically recent and unprecedented improvements in health observed in high-income countries were due not to biomedical innovation but to changes in human habits and habitats.
