How many cures since Polio?

Check this out, 65 years ago on March 26th, 1953 Dr. Jonas Salk announced he had developed a vaccine for polio. He had made this preventative measure with inactive polio so there was no risk of getting the disease from the vaccine.  When he announced this, polio was one of the top health scares on the nation’s mind. By April 1955 the vaccine had been tested on over one million children, after passing animal testing, and announced to be safe for the masses.

With so many people scared about the world we live in, just remember we’ll soon have another Jonas Salk working towards eradicating this world of diseases.
