The History of Medicine

The History of Medicine

2000 BC….. Here, eat this root.

1000 AD….. That root is 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.

2000 AD… That antibiotic is harmful. Here, eat this root.

Food is power... are you in control of yours?

Agriculture as we know it cannot feed the world's
population much longer. Due to water and wind erosion
caused by current agricultural practices, an estimated
45-90 years of farmable soil are left on the planet.*

- John Jeavons, creator of the Grow Biointensive technique

* Statistic taken from P. Buringh's "Availability of
Agricultural Land for Crop and Livestock Production," 1989,
in D. Pimentel and C.W. Hall (Eds.) Food and Natural Resources,
San Diego, Academic Press.
