Top 10 Inventions That Protected Human Health


It has been over a year since the COVID-19 pandemic has terrified mankind. Many people believe that vaccines are the savior that will save humanity from COVID-19.

The Korean Intellectual Property Office announced on the 15th that “vaccine” was selected as the No. The survey was conducted from the 12th to the 14th in such a way that experts were asked to recommend 3 out of 30 medical and health-related inventions selected in advance. About 800 people participated in this survey.

After that, antibiotics came in second, refrigerators in third, masks in fourth, and soap in fifth. Next, air purifiers, endoscopes, anti-inflammatory analgesics, anesthetics, and flush toilets ranked 6th to 10th.

Vaccines accounted for 17.5% of the total effective responses, and were selected as the best inventions that have protected human health. People posted support articles such as ‘No.

The vaccine was invented in 1796 by British physician Edward Jenner, who tested the pus of a patient infected with vaccinia into the arm of a boy who had never had smallpox. The results were published in the medical community in 1798, and in 1853 Congress made vaccinia vaccination compulsory.

The antibiotic selected in second place accounted for 11.4% of the effective responses. Respondents referred to antibiotics as “an innovation in the medical field” and posted supportive posts such as “(antibiotics) have dramatically increased human lifespan.”

Refrigerator, which received 9.4% of the vote, came in third. Some people noted the role of the refrigerator in vaccinations being carried out during the COVID-19 crisis, such as posting an article titled, “It is also a refrigerator to store vaccines and medicines.” One respondent even posted, “I lived without a refrigerator for two weeks and my quality of life was poor.”

Regarding the mask, which took fourth place, one respondent posted, “If there were no mask, how could Corona have been prevented…”. It is analyzed that there are quite a few people who feel that masks are contributing to preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Regarding the soap that ranked fifth, one respondent posted, ‘If there was no soap that minimizes infection by maintaining cleanliness, we would probably be in danger of survival’.

Meanwhile, the 30 inventions presented in this survey are air purifiers, casts, endoscopes, refrigerators, masks, anesthetics (ether), vaccines, moisturizers, hearing aids, soaps, disinfectants (iodine), anti-inflammatory painkillers (aspirin), flush toilets, kidney dialysis machines, Cardiac defibrillators, glasses, radiology (X-ray, MRI, etc.), artificial organs (prosthetic limbs), incubators, water purifiers, syringes, hemostatic agents, stethoscopes, thermometers, scales, toothbrush toothpaste, antibiotics (penicillin), blood glucose measurement kits, blood pressure monitors , respiratory aids, etc.

I am a contributor to Advancetec.co.uk. I am fascinated by technology overall, especially crypto and it's potential to disrupt the global financial system. But until that future comes, I am perfectly content immersing myself in gaming, movies, gadgets, and all of the other wonders of the modern world.
