Here is a spectacular, thought-provoking, and highly informative guide to the fascinating story of medicine. Superb color photographs of medical instruments and experiments, plus modern internal imaging, offer a unique "eyewitness" view of the amazing discoveries that have transformed our understanding of medical science. See a set of false teeth from ancient Rome, how amputations were carried out before anesthetics, what the first microscopes looked like, what a crash cart is used for, and how the periwinkle is used in the treatment of leukemia. Learn how Charles II of England attempted to cure more than 92,000 people of scrofula, how pills were made in the 19th century, how the use of antiseptics became widespread, and what happens during microsurgery. Discover how unsuccessful physicians in ancient Egypt had their hands cut off, how black ants were once used instead of stitches to seal wounds, and why the work. And much, much more!
