  1. Euthenics

    Euthenics deals with the "improvement" through altering external factors such as education and the controllable environment, including the prevention and removal of contagious disease and parasites, environmentalism, education regarding home economics, sanitation, and housing. The term was derived in the late 19th century from the Greek verb euthenein: "thrive", "flourish". Ellen Swallow Richards was one of the first writers to use the term, in The Cost of Shelter, with the meaning "the science of better living". Euthenics is not normally interpreted to have anything to do with changing the composition of the human gene pool by definition, although everything that affects society has some effect on who reproduces and who does not.
