Evolution of Healthcare Technology

Biotechnology emerged when humans began to do things such as: Use plants for medicine and breed plants and animals.

Present Day Healthcare Technology
Eradication or Virtually Eliminated Diseases through Vaccinations
Human Papillomavirus (HPV)

Today, vaccinations easier to obtain, but are more expensive.

America vs Other
There are around 500,000 medical technologies available today.
Technology continues to grow and prosper.
Unfortunately some countries like Japan never get to commercialize their products.

Certain treatments would have been costly while some would have been more easy to aquire
Some diseases that broke out in the 1800s are: Typhoid, Cholera, Tuberculosis, Smallpox, the Bubonic Plague, etc.
Infant mortality rates in the 1900s were actually higher than in the 1800s because Diphtheria, Whooping cough, and Measles killed many babies.
While Smallpox has been eradicated, and the Bubonic Plague no longer devours the population, diseases like malaria, and the flu still affect people worldwide.
