“I remember as a child when polio, struck fear, absolute terror in parents. People altered their behavior with their children, their willingness to go to a ballgame, and to go to a swimming pool in the summer. People were terrified. Polio is eradicated, and it’s not not just polio. Before modern medicines, diseases such as measles, mumps, polio, whooping cough, were common, and caused great, great, great, great suffering and deaths for thousands of people every single year.”
