I'm 25 and I've never realized the iron lung existed! I've been doing lots of research about vaccines (vaccinating my baby...and I wanted to research all the "controversy"). And I can't believe that the iron lung polio thing was never mentioned in ANY of my history classes back in my school days?
Did anybody here live through it? These pictures seem so horrifying to me. Why any of these extremists won't vaccinate their children is beyond me
The color picture was of a 61 year old woman that just died who had lived in an iron lung since she was 3 years old!!!!
