What would the human race be like if we did not have some of today's modern medicines? It would probably be just like it was 200 years ago. Doctors "claiming" to know cures forsome of the world's most infectious diseases, and then treating them in the some of themost inhuman ways. People would be ... We will probably find cures to all of these diseases too but it will definitelytake another "Golden Age of Microbiology" to find them. ...
