As the decade of the "oughts" is ending and the decades of the "teens" is about to begin, the media will no doubt be full of retrospective looks back over the past 10 years. The Daily Beast's Max Read has jumped into the fray, assembling a list of what he deemed to be the decade'[s 21 biggest medical breakthroughs. Prevention accounted for five of them. Those five are as follows:

  • HPV Vaccine
  • Human Vaccine against Bird Flu
  • Discrediting the link between Autism and Childhood Vaccination
  • Circumcision Discovered to Help Prevent HIV
  • Pentacel - the 5-in-1 Childhood Vaccine
Anybody  have other ideas? Share them with us.
