Rotary International is an organization that has many goals, one of which
was/is to eliminate polio from the world’s human population. Give a brief
history of this mission (one paragraph) and then give YOUR prediction about the
world’s population’s growth if another condition/disease (you choose it) is
eliminated from the human population worldwide. Include a population curve for
the population WITH the condition and then a simultaneous curve on the same
graph of the population WITHOUT the condition after 100 years. (Color code your
two population curves.) Cut/paste the graph into the msword document for this week’s
iLab. Include the sources of the original population density’s data.
