Medicine Through the Ages...

I just stole this off someone's MySpace page. (I'm sure he stole it from somewhere else on the web, too.)

2000 BC, Here eat this root.
1000 AD, That root is for a heathen, here say this prayer.
1850 AD, That prayer is superstition, here drink this potion.
1940 AD, That potion is snake oil, here swallow this pill.
1985 AD, That pill is ineffective, here take this antibiotic
2000 AD, That antibiotic is artificial, here eat this root.
