The article features polio vaccination. On September 24, 1976, the Washington Post reported Dr. Jonas Salk's assertion that the live oral virus vaccine of Dr. Albert Sabin had been the cause of reported polio cases in the US since 1961. By contrast, the public and orthodox medicine are yet to pay proper attention to the work of Dr. Claus Washington Jungeblut. Jungeblut received his M.D. from the University of Bern in 1921 and conducted research at the Robert Koch Institute in Berlin.
