BAD MEDICINE
According to Professor David Wootton author of Bad Medicine: Doctors Doing Harm Since Hippocrates, up until the advent and application, in the 19th century, of Joseph Listers’s theories about antiseptic surgery, most doctors and medical practitioners did more harm than good.  Laurie Taylor reappraises the history of medicine with historian, Professor David Wootton and medical sociologist, Professor David Armstrong from King’s College, London.
