    Default A Short History Of Medicine

    A short history of medicine:

    2000 B. C. – Here, eat this root.

    1000 A. D. – That root is heathen. Here, say this prayer.

    1850 A. D. – That prayer is superstition. Here, drink this potion.

    1940 A. D. – That potion is snake oil. Here, swallow this pill.

    1985 A. D. – That pill is ineffective. Here, take this antibiotic.

    2000 A. D. – That antibiotic is artificial. Here eat this root.

    Right on point. Expected to see "vaccine" in the 1940s--the year smallpox, diphtheria, tetanus, & pertussis vaccines were recommended.
