Strange Medicine: A Shocking History of Real Medical Practices Through the Ages

by Nathan Belofsky Author

Strange Medicine recounts some of the most ridiculous medical concepts of history. From bizarre cures to sheer blunders, you'll see why people just don't trust doctors. From the ancients who used electric eels to cure gout to the mediaeval dentists who burned their patients' mouths to kill imaginary worms, there's no end to the bizarre stories and anecdotes you can glean from this work.
