How the Spanish American War Led to the First Cancer Prevention Vaccine by M. Ward Hinds MPH MD

Over a period of almost 100 years, the author traces the history of the development of the first cancer prevention vaccine. Although the trail is not at all direct, and is sometimes lost for a decade or more, there is good reason to doubt that a vaccine against hepatitis B would have been available in the 20th century if the Americans had not declared war on Spain and sent large numbers of troops to yellow fever-infested Cuba in 1898. No fewer than three Nobel Prizes were awarded to scientists who made major contributions as the story unfolds.
