Here is a circa 1890- 1900 patent medicine cinderella promoting "The genuine Loeflund's Malt Extract". Inscription on label says, "According to Liebig, it has been proven as a first-class nutritional and cough suppressant for 50 years."

The label uses the "endorsement" of biological scientist Justus von Liebig (1803-73), one of the principal founders of organic chemistry. In the area of nutrition, Liebig worked mainly with meat extracts, but he also studied other areas. From wikipedia, "He promoted the use of baking powder to make lighter bread, studied the chemistry of coffee-making, and developed a breast milk substitute for babies who could not suckle. He is considered to have made possible the invention of Marmite, because of his discovery that yeast could be concentrated."

Second pic shows the May 12, 1953 West German stamp (Mi #166) commemorating the 150th anniversary of the birth of Jesus von Liebig.

On March 8, 2006 the USA issued these two definitive stamps depicting the medical researchers responsible for developing vaccines to prevent paralytic poliomyelitis. The 63c value (Sc #3428) shows Dr. Jonas Salk (1914-1995), and the 87c stamp (Sc #3435) shows Dr. Albert Sabin (1906-1993).

From sciencehistory.org, "In the 1950's Salk and Sabin developed separate vaccines - one (Salk) from a killed virus and the other (Sabin) from a live virus - to combat the dreaded disease polio. Jonas Salk became a national hero when he allayed the fear of polio with his vaccine approved in 1955. Although it was the first polio vaccine, it was not the last; Albert Sabin introduced the oral vaccine in the 1960's that replaced Salk's."

Later research showed that there is a very slight chance of transmission of polio with the live virus method; so, since the 1990's, Salk's vaccine is in use in the USA.
