Incredible medical breakthroughs coming to cure diseases and save lives
By Newt Gingrich (Original source Fox News)
“The world is entering the next big wave of medical and pharmaceutical breakthroughs.
The first wave began with the widespread use of vaccines and antibiotics in the 1940s and 1950s, which caused death rates in the industrialized world to plummet.
The second wave of breakthroughs occurred with the introduction of statins, treatments for HIV/AIDS, and the refinement of chemotherapy drugs in the 1990s.
