The History of Medicine

This is an interesting analogy of the history of medicine.

 

2000 B.C.: I have an earache. Here, take this root.

1000 A.D.: That root is heathen, 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 not effective. Here, take this antibiotic.

2000 A.D.: That antibiotic is artificial. Here take this root.
