What technological or medical breakthrough during your lifetime are you most grateful for?
It is amazing all of the medical and technological breakthroughs which has come about in a relatively short period of time. This past weekend I was visiting my parents and they remember the Polio vaccine coming out being a big deal. It is amazing that certain things like Polio is something I have never concerned myself with because of a medical breakthrough which occurred prior to my birth. What breakthroughs have occurred during your lifetime that you remember as being huge (to you personally or to the world as a whole).
I would have to say the polio vaccine. I remember sitting in line waiting for my turn to get the shorts. There were three spaced out over several weeks. At the time it was just an annoyance but once I was out and working I started realizing how many people had been affected by polio. Not everyone had a severe case but they still suffered muscle problems later in life. Post-polio syndrome is not really a disease but rather a side effect of the original polio but it can ruin the person's life.
