Some of these so-called cures are beyond belief!

Some of these so-called cures are beyond belief! For instance: Mercury, now known to be highly toxic, was once thought to draw poison from the body.

All of this directed me to a more authoritative source of information on ancient and contemporary cures titled, Weird cures: The most hilarious, disgusting, and downright dangerous medical treatments ever!, a quirky little paperback by Shram and Salmans (2006). These authors, who have an interesting bibliography including a book on slips of the tongue that derailed high-powered careers, have assembled a strange compilation of treatments and cures for nearly everything that has disgruntled humankind.

Most disgusting of all, Egyptian physicians used human and animal excrement as a cure-all remedy for diseases and injuries. According to 1500 . s Ebers Papyrus, donkey, dog, gazelle and fly dung were all celebrated for their healing properties and their ability to ward off bad spirits.

This is a fun little book that contains information about various unusual medical cures that had been used over the years. It is broken into sections for various diseases; woman trouble, male trouble, etc. It would make a good gag gift or stocking stuffer for a medical prefessional or someone thinking about a career in medicine.

I found this book okay. It isn't bad to pick up when I want to pick up something short and sort of mindless to read. There is a wow factor in some of the things that are in this book too. Still, nothing stands out about this book really and I am going to stand by my title that this book was just "okay."

This is a very small book and only worth purchasing because I got it for a *deep* discount. I would not buy it at full price.
