A Concise History of Medicine:

"I have an earache."

2000 B.C. ~ Here, eat this root.
1000 A.D. ~ That root is heathen. Here, 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 ineffective. Here, take this antibiotic.
2000 A.D. ~ That antibiotic is artificial. Here, eat this root.

Oh how very true, Gord.

It's funny how modern medical science, now have started to accept certain types of "herbal healings!"

But it just boils down to this. They're repeating history all over again?
