Incorrect.Google the difference between ameliorate and cure.
None of the diseases you listed have been vanquished from the face of the earth. Better hygiene and sanitation has done more to
amerliorate these diseases than vaccinations.
Smallpox. Completely vanquished from the face of the Earth.
Polio and guinea-worm disease are almost eradicated.
Hmmm...Hygiene and sanitation?
You have them thanks to Louis Pasteur (French Chemist)
So...you have science to thank for that as well.
You seem to misundertand what a vaccine does. It doesn't cure...it prevents. Of coarse it won't work on an infected subject."You cannot immunize sick children, malnourished children, and expect to get away with it. You'll kill far more children than would have died from natural infection."--Dr Kalokerinos (International Vaccine Newsletter June 1995)
"This is a common misconception. The vaccine seems to work in some cases but only if the individual has not been exposed to HPV. The flu vaccine doesn't work either and for the same reason vaccinations don't cure diseases. Viruses mutate. You've heard of super bugs?
I did say "cureable and/or preventable"
My list stands. All cureable or preventable through science and its vast discoveries.
Although it is cute how you lean on science to explain super bugs but scoff at it's ability to deal with them.
