    A Short History of Medicine
    2000 B.C. - "Here, eat this root."
    1000 A.D - "That root is heathen, say this prayer."
    1850 A.D. - "That prayer is superstition, drink this potion."
    1940 A.D. - "That potion is snake oil, swallow this pill."
    1985 A.D. - "That pill is ineffective, take this antibiotic."
    2000 A.D. - "That antibiotic is artificial. Here, eat this root."

    With this mushrooming growth of traditional practitioners and complementary/alternatives medicines sellers, are we rejuvenating to 2000 B.C?
