Health Talk Recommends: Watch polio disappear across the world

You can literally watch polio disappear from countries across the world in this Vine video posted by the Gates Foundation.

The quick but powerful video shows there are still three countries to go to fully eradicate the disease, but we’ve come so far as a global society in battling this once crippling disease.

The Health Talk team thought this was pretty cool. Take a look!

Vine is a social media tool where users capture seven-second or less videos to help tell a story in a visually compelling way. Most Vines are light-hearted in nature but powerful ones like these can stop you in your tracks.

What other diseases could vaccinations help to end worldwide?
