Cobwebs Stop Wounds Bleeding?!

Серия: "Would You Believe..."

Young scientists get a real taste of the story behind the medicine as we examine the amazing practices used in medicine past and present. Readers will learn about the often painful and frequently distasteful medical practices that our ancestors employed such as using leeches, eating snail shells or body snatching, as well as those that are still used around the world today - who needs an anaesthetic anyway?! Includes alternative therapies and major medical discoveries that changed the face of medical practice.
