Sooo happy i live in the post vaccine era


Every time I learn about tetanus I feel a sense of relief. I am relieved that we live in the modern era. I am happy microbiologist exist. Imagine watching some one suffer the effects of tetanus pre modern science. You would probably think it was some type of demon possession. If I didn’t know any better I would think it was some Exorcist thing going on. Can  you imagine how ineffectual you would feel after watching a person suffering from this if you didn’t know what it was. This alone might turn you religious. Maybe the stories of demon possession in religious texts were  infections. I don’t know. But thank goodness for scientist coming up with vaccines and doctors applying that science. Tetanus is some scary shit.
