Dr.MoreThe late Linus Pauling is the only man in the world to have won two unshared Nobel Prizes: in 1954, for Chemistry and in 1962, for Peace. Two Nobel Prizes by one man in one lifetime! Linus Pauling was globally admired and globally controversial.

Dr. Pauling candidly spoke his mind about peace to presidents, heads of state, and all others alike. He hated war. He found it unacceptable. He shared this devotion to pacifism with his friend Albert Einstein. In 1958, he presented a petition, that was signed by 11,000 scientists, warning the public about the biological danger of radioactive fallout from nuclear weapons testing. World peace was Paulings passion, but he was equally as dedicated to chemistry as it helps humanity. His 1954 Nobel Prize was awarded for his work on genetic influences in relation to the atomic structure of proteins in hemoglobin.

He discovered that sickle cell anemia is caused by a genetic defect. Here is the story of a brilliant scientist and the world that he touched.
