The result of this lack of respect for the physiological nature of man was the fall of general sanitary culture, the growing number of diseases, including infectious. Plague, for example, in Europe raged for four hundred years, bringing the population of the continent to the XIV century was reduced by a quarter. In the fifteenth century, Europe is entering a new era – the Renaissance. Along with the restoration of the cultural traditions of the ancient civilization and the culture of life is restored. In place of the cold dark, poorly ventilated and poorly illuminated medieval castles come full sunlight and heat palaces.
The way a society, its culture is largely dependent upon the powers, but the powers that be not free from public opinion. Makrosotsium, the population of the city, the country begins to assess the powerful, not only in terms of their personal wealth, but from the point of view of the state of the estate. Public perception that the “king suite is” forcing landowners and the city fathers to take care of people. Developed specific requirements for the culture of life, to personal hygiene, food hygiene, a system of public health.
Why so the plague was raging? Because not cleaned streets, dead bodies from disease, lay in the gutter, devoured by rats. Rats have traveled on ships and transported pastarellu pestis – plague wand from country to country. As soon ordered the isolation of patients in special hospitals, monasteries, hospitals, organize street cleaning and destroy rats as terrible epidemic subsided.
However, in the public health system in addition to a huge role makrosotsiuma “big society” is the immediate environment of the person, his “small group” microsocium. For example, the culture and the individual family. Historically speaking, it is easily confirmed by an example from the Russian way of life. At the same landlord serfs were all more or less equal terms. But where the parents take care of children, used traditional medicine, using herbs, followed purity, family experience passed down from generation to generation, growing physically and mentally healthy people. With neglect, domestic-will, drunkenness, moral corruption grew inadequate generation.
