The technology driving medicine today is ages ahead of what people once depended on. The rate at which we’ve been advancing is almost hard to wrap your head around. When we take a look back at the insane medical practices that were in place before, it’s clear we had no idea what we were doing. Every researcher or doctor thought they had a cure all medicine but in reality, they had almost no idea what they were doing. Several people even died from what was once considered a “treatment”. But not everything went to waste, some of these practices have made it into today’s medical practices, with (a lot) of revision of course!
