It is often stated that the massive gains in health in Europe and North America at the turn of the 20th century were the result of improvements in water and sanitation (for example, construction of sewers). However, careful examination of records from this time period paints a more complex picture; in some cases, health gains happened before these developments while in other cases health gains failed to follow after improvements in water and sanitation had been put in place.
