The How and Why of 12 Medical Discoveries
The stories of how medical discoveries came about and how they work
This book comes from a curious desire I had to see why they figured out different medical discoveries. Medicine has advanced so much the last 150 years. In this book I tell the stories of how these discoveries came about and how they work. Included are the history of blood transfusions, DNA, tetanus, the bubonic plague, x-rays, ultrasounds, anesthetics, and more.
