A keenly observant young man named Tony Allison, working in East Africa in the 1950s, first noticed the connection and assembled the pieces of the puzzle. His story stands as the first and one of the best understood examples of natural selection, where the selective agent, adaptive mutation, and molecule involved are known—and this is in humans to boot. The protection against malaria by the sickle-cell mutation shows how evolution does not necessarily result in the best solution imaginable but proceeds by whatever means are available.

In 1957, Ronald Holman published in Nature "A method of destroying a malignant rat tumour in vivo," in which he claimed that "daily continued oral administration of commercial hydrogen peroxide (in drinking water) caused complete regression of Walker carcinoma 256 [a type of rat breast carcinoma cell line] in rats in 50–60 per cent of the cases. This laboratory finding was applied in humans with advanced inoperable cancers. In two of the four cases there was reported a definite subjective and objective improvement." Others claim to have cured cancer in mice with hydrogen peroxide, but there is no clinical evidence that any humans have been cured of cancer with this kind of treatment.
