Two tragedies promoted as wonderful
In 'Vaccination Condemned,' the author (Elben) shares that the Mulford Company (vaccine manufacturer) staged the Balto sled dog promotion to stir up fear and suspense. She writes that the vaccine could have been transported faster and easier, but that would not have been as good PR, and that AFTER the serum was delivered and utilized was when the real epidemic broke out. That is tragedy #1. Tragedy #2 is that dogs suffer terribly and often die pulling sleds. I guess I could add that tragedy #3 is people buy into dramatic stories and don't investigate further behind the scenes.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
