As licensed medical physicians who believe that humor is the best medicine, the authors decode the methods behind the seemingly mad science in these lighthearted mini essays. </p><p>3 out of 3 authors recommend that you read it immediately!</p><p>Kooky, creepy, crazy examples include:</p><p>* Bee venom to treat herpes<br>* Intestinal parasites for allergy meds<br>* "Natural" ways to make your genitalia larger<br>* Potato to stop bleeding after delivery<br>* Salt pork for a sore throat<br>* Vampire Facials</p>
