Anti VD poster from WWII
Diseases were the largest killer during and after WWI

why is this significant:

the World Health Organization sought to organize science for human good on a world scale, but in the awareness science had been used for war

treatments for diseases were not available to everyone

disease could be a weapon

many biological weapons are possible

research continued after the war on weapons of civilian death

radiological contamination was the weapon that got the most interest in the military immediately after the war
