I as a M.D would like to add small reference to this specific time of Korea 1950 and a incident involving a youg photographer who was in fact a average white american caucasian. Living during 1950 who engage in this area unlisted near the philippine,islands working in his dark room every night for over 12 hours, who eventually after 3 consecutive years became light sensitive from overdeveloping and his skin developed a after exposure corrosive germ which became unmanageable, until the medical team discovered it was a microscopic bacteria, that need to be corrected so he could return to a normative life.Salk was the only answer. Plus his inguenuity to mediate the proper prescription for skin replacement treatment. Later this young man with the help of modern botanicals and a new skin upper epidermis was identified as being labeled a Korean.. For future records he also was part of a initiative to order this prescriptive treatment for others who would work under these photosynthesis' technician union scales and developed this artificial skin graft for burn units as well as a protective covering for employee's who needed to work under these work conditions.
