Some experts say smallpox goes as far back as the 6th century.
It worked—kind of. Severe infections dropped. But it was helpful enough to traverse the globe. As this method of smallpox immunity traveled the world, it was amended and adapted, but it was still very messy and largely unsanitary. And the milkmaids themselves were getting similar bumps on their hands and were coincidentally not getting smallpox.
There were some negative side-effects since these humans were the first to experiment with transmitting a disease directly from its animal host to humans. English physician Edward Jenner decided to formalize the exposure process—and he found the milkmaids to be the perfect intermediary since Human cow story worked so closely with cows anyways. Jenner standardized the practice of spreading cowpox from human to human and the rest is history!
We talk a lot about animals infecting humans, but this is one time in history where an animal spread a cure technically! Once the concept of a vaccine was discovered, it took about years to completely eradicate a devastating disease that had been around for over 1, years. This origin story about something we can no longer imagine life without speaks to the power and potential of effective One Health policies. There is such an interconnectedness between animals and humans that we will really struggle to solve human issues without considering all the ways our relationships with animals affect us.
