Polio and Post-Polio Syndrome: A Short Overview on Polio and How to Manage Post-Polio Syndrome by Jerome P. Nicholson is a medical summary of what polio is and how to cope with it. Polio is caused by a virus that affects the digestive tract. The disease has several phases and impacts people differently. The effects can range from mild flu-like symptoms to paralysis. It is difficult to know if a person has contracted polio because its early-stage symptoms are common in other illnesses. The author describes the symptoms of polio and the importance of vaccination as a preventative measure. The book also covers the different types of polio vaccines, including those that are approved by the World Health Organization.
Polio may not have a high mortality rate, but it is a devastating illness. This disease has been around for many generations and is popularly known for crippling Franklin D. Roosevelt, the thirty-second President of the United States. The information in this book is not only vital for parents and guardians trying to prevent their children from contracting polio, but it is also relevant for victims of the disease. This book will help people who may experience post-polio syndrome to seek the correct medication. The data the author has provided is described in layman's terms and is easy to understand. The book can also be useful to medical students who wish to have an overview of the disease. I loved the section that dealt with vaccination against polio. This part of the book was presented perfectly, and it gives hope to the human race. Polio has not defeated us, and we still have the upper hand.
