Description

The Story of Medicine: Pain, Pus and Poison on DVD

In this "entertaining medical series" (The Sunday Times, U.K.), Dr. Michael Mosley shows how drugs have revolutionized medicine and changed the course of human history. Unfolding over a period of 200 years, it's an extraordinary tale of daring, self-experimentation, revelation, genius, and outright luck. In three episodes, Mosley recounts how humans have learned to fight back against disease and death-from unleashing the power of nature's medicine cabinet to the mass production of modern pharmaceuticals. With his characteristic enthusiasm, sense of fun, and hands-on approach, Mosley takes you on a journey of discovery and scientific breakthrough that has saved millions of lives and transformed our world-and that promises a personalized, genetic approach to medicine in the future.
