There is a battle of two wolves inside us.  One is good and the other is evil.  The wolf that wins is the one you feed.

That is interesting. Thanks for sharing. I didn't know the polio virus could live for 10 years in soil which a person infected with the virus had pood on. Wiping out polio is clearly a long game if possible at all. And I agree that it's a bad idea to focus only on parts of child health in the developing world.
