General Health Topic - "The History of Medicine"

Hello Everyone,
Here is a little something that will hopefully brighten your morning.
The "History" of Medicine

"Doctor, I have an Earache."

2000 B.C.: "Here, eat this root."

1000 B.C.: "That root is heathen, say this prayer."

1850 A.D.: "That prayer is superstition, drink this potion."

1940 A.D.: "That potion is snake oil, swallow this pill."

1985 A.D.: "That pill is ineffective, take this antibiotic."

2008 A.D.: "That antibiotic is artificial. Here, eat this root!"
