The Evolution of Medicine

Stolen/borrowed from Health is Money:

Evolution of medicine:
I have a headache ...
2000 BC - Eat this root
1000 AD - That root is infected. Say this prayer.
1850 AD - That prayer is superstition. Drink this potion.1
940 AD - That potion is snake oil. Swallow this pill.
1985 AD - That pill is ineffective. Take this antibiotic.
2000 AD - That antibiotic is artificial. Eat this root.

Hehe. It's sooo true, though. One minute they're telling people to do this or that, and the next it's something completely different to take care of the side effects of the first one. Hell, half the meds older people take are to counteract the ill effects of the meds they take for the original problems. There's constantly a new prescription med on the market, and for everyone, there's something "natural" that another company is trying to market....and *neither one* is going to work half the time.
