Health Research Stamp
Continental Chrome PM 1984 May-17

Description:
For thousands of years, health research consisted of little more than the practice of magic. But, over the centuries as man learned more about the human body ... and perfected methods of health research ... medicine became a more scientific discipline. Today, through the efforts of health researchers, medicine has become a respected science that can offer hope of cure to mankind. Indeed, because of the advancements made by health research professionals, people around the world now live longer and happier lives. Health research has provided the key to controlling diseases that once meant certain death to anyone who contracted them. For example, smallpox, polio, and yellow fever are no longer the incurable diseases they once were ... all because of the dedicated work of health researchers. In 1984, the United States Postal Service issued the stamp featured on this Maximum Card to call national attention to the great service America's health research professionals are providing for mankind
