History of medicine

Via Amec, zie “maghiarian” freunden, we have a nice joke today about the history of our medicine.

“I have a sore throat.”

2000 BC : “Eat this root”
1200 AD : “That root is heathen, say this prayer.”
1500 AD : “That prayer is superstition, drink this elixir.”
1800 AD : “That elixir is snake oil, Take this pill.”
1900 AD : “That pill is ineffective, Take this antibiotic.”
2000 AD : “That antibiotic is artificial, Here why don’t you eat this root.”
