California Quotes: Principal Cause of Death in California

The principal cause of death in California is tuberculosis, which caused 15.5 per cent of the total deaths. ...
Next to tuberculosis come diseases of the circulatory, respiratory, and nervous systems... The proportions are next highest for diseases of the digestive system (diarrhea and enteritis, etc.), violence other than suicide or public calamity, cancer, Bright's disease, and early infancy.

From: The California State Board of Health Monthly Bulletin, September 1906, p. 32.
