The Sickening History of Medicine

Before there was anesthesia, antibiotics, or even an understanding that germs can kill, what happened when people got sick? And how were our modern medical methods developed, anyway? This series takes readers through the history of medicine, using fascinating and sometimes gruesome illustrations to describe ancient epidemics, early remedies, and the scientific discoveries that brought us to where we are today.
