People Should Be an Organ Donor Organ transplantation is not a new idea. It could be found in myths of the ancient Greeks in third century and was referred to by older civilizations. (PBS) However, people thought that it was impossible to do until the World War II, it had became a real strong motivation. (TORSC) After several years, the kidney was the first successful human organ to be transplanted by Dr. Joseph Murray and Dr. David Hume at Brigham Hospital in Boston on December 23, 1954s. (LiveOnNY) This success transplantation defined as lasting more than half years in recorded history.

In 1968, Ashoke’s and Ashima’s baby was born of 5:05 in the morning, following behind this Ashoke named the baby Gogol. The motivation behind this action is the fact that in 1962, the book “The Overcoat,” wrote by a man with the last name of Gogol, saved his life. What lead to this was a train wreck in 1962, and Ashoke was “flung by the speed of the crash farther into the field.”, as stated on page 17. Rescuers arrived, in spite of this Ashoke was not able to call for help. On page 18, the text says that “He was still clutching a single page of “The Overcoat,” crumpled tightly in his fist, and when he raised his hand the wad of paper dropped from his fingers.
That's when Louis Pasteur came into play and made a vaccine that he thought could possibly save someone's life from rabies. This is what changed my perspective, knowing that Mr.Pasteur has made a vaccine years and years from today that saved people's lives from rabies. Now you look back and start to thank Mr.Pasteur for his hard work because if Mr.Pasteur never made a vaccine to cure a rabie bite lots of people might have died. In March of 1885, it was time to start testing if the vaccine actually worked. Mr.Pasteur already found out it worked on animals
Though a conspiracy thought that Zachary Taylor had been poisoned he actually died from milk and cherries. Zachary Taylor died on July 9, 1850, but how did he die? “The second to die in office, Zachary Taylor, president No. 12, did not cut much of a figure in his year-and-a-quarter in the white house” (Dark Times 1). Zachary Taylor had not been in office long before he was overcome by a strange illness.

Smallpox outbreaks have occurred from time to time for thousands of years, but the disease is now eradicated after a successful worldwide vaccination program. The last naturally occurring case in the world was in Somalia in 1977. After the disease was eliminated from the world, routine vaccination against smallpox among the general public was stopped because it was no longer necessary for prevention. In 1970, when smallpox was nearly eradicated, a previously unrecognized orthopoxvirus named monkey pox was identified in humans. The first known human case occurred in the Equateur province of Zaire (now known as the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) when a 9-year-old boy developed smallpox like illness, which was eventually confirmed as human monkey pox by the World Health Organization (Ladnyj et al., 1972).
They went through multiple operations as it was the only way to get some improvement on Johnny’s tumor, but Johnny never actually gained blindness. God’s grace gives Johnny much less of what may have caused him to no longer do anything in life, and instead just has him lose a little eyesight. Johnny faces a tumor with hopeless odds, as a short life, great deal of pain, and blindness attempt to destroy his life. However, the hand of God protects Johnny from having to deal with these problems. Without God’s

On March 30, 1842 he successfully removed a tumor from James Venable under sulfuric-ether. James woke up in a little discomfort, and no memory of the surgery. However, he did not publish his findings in writing. He also was a surgeon during the Civil War to both sides in Athens, Georgia. In 1846, Dr. William Morton was wrongly credited of being the first person to have used sulfuric-ether as a sedative for surgery.

Polio: An American Story written by David Oshinsky highlights the journey to the discovery of a vaccine which would finally put an end to the once mysterious disease, Poliomyelitis. The journey begins in Otter Valley, Vermont, as it was the first Polio epidemic to be documented in the United States. Unknowingly, it would take years after the first epidemic in 1894 to find a solution for this frightening illness. The disease dates back to ancient time, with cases describing the victims to be left with disfigured limbs and some eventually to be paralyzed. Oshinsky identifies that the disease appeared in three phases: endemic, which occurs in a sporadically within a group of people, epidemic, in which it affected many people and spread rapidly,

He was also a chemist, writer, teacher/professor, and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Benjamin Rush was much more than what people think he is.

After many sessions, her patients began to improve and some even regained full use of their muscles. However, this was only a treatment, not a cure, and did not work for all polio victims. The iron lung was another important treatment. It was introduced in 1927 by Philip Drinker and his colleagues. In the iron lung, a polio patient would have a cylindrical metal tank fitted over his or her
