    You can’t make chok’lit cake without eggs and milk, and a life without chok’lit cake is almost as bad as a life without bacon. YUM! BACON! How ‘bout a bacon sammitch and a slice of chok’lit cake and a glass of ice-cold whole milk? Sound good?

    Hippocrates believed that eating fruit was unhealthy.

    Probably not the best thing to emulate.
    .
    Doctors by Roman times had a very mixed reputation and were not held in high esteem like today. Many were quacks.
    .
    The surgeons of the legions were another matter. Despite not having germ theory, they would boil their instruments, and used vinegar to sterilize wounds. They had a surprisingly good rate of saving soldiers’ lives. They used henbane seeds as anasthetic. They were not surpassed until the late 1800s.

    Regardless the back and forth on food choices, physical activity and quantity of intake, the last two panels sums it up pretty well.

    When surgeons reluctantly agreed to wash their hands between dissecting corpses and doing open surgery. Germs was only a theory, right?

    Meat was always a big deal in the past, and having it was a sign or wealth. (Remember Robin Hood? Poaching animals on the King’s land was a serious crime in those days.)
    Putting meat on the table became a symbol of a successful provider (either as a hunter/fisherman or having the wealth to buy it).
    We’re still acting the way they did 500 years ago, even though the meaning’s been lost.
    Well, except to the TV commercials, which insist we need to eat meat at all three meals…

    You completely forgot poppie juice used to stop pain. And it was used way before the 1800’s

    Germs weren’t even much of an idea. If it was a theory they would know about it and wash their hands.

    Anesthesia existed in the Middle Ages, it was stopped because some patients never woke up so it was thought that anesthesia was the reason. Better operate on a screaming, fighting body, at least he wouldn’t go to sleep and never wake up.

    Today’s strip seems to contradict yesterday’s strip, unless Big Pharma and Whole Foods are in cahoots somehow.

    Last words of the doc: too true by half.

    Dr. McCoy: Who knows? It might eventually cure the common cold, but lengthen lives? Poppycock! I can do more for you if you just eat right and exercise regularly.

    Its things like industry and ethics (in the same sentence) that make this strip so funny.

    And THERE you have the ENTIRE American Medical INDUSTRY explained in 4 simple panels of a comic strip!
    In other words; “We really DON’T care if you get well, just as long as you can pay for our next boat!”
