  9. Medical Practices That Led to Advanced Medicine

    The scientific method is a process of trial and error. Medicine, a subset of scientific research, is no different. Throughout human history, we’ve experimented with a variety of different treatment methods for a variety of different diseases, trying to find effective cures to help treat sick people. Although they haven’t all been successful, those that did not work, brought us closer to actual cures that did.
