Men’s Health

Tomorrow I need to get stuck like a porcupine as I get myriad vaccinations for a trip to foreign climes that has been sprung on me by my corporate overlords. Unfortunately my records aren’t up to date, and my memory is unreliable for this type of thing so I shall have to have a raft of these to ensure coverage. And yes, as a biologist with some history in medical microbiology and human immunology, I wholeheartedly ascribe to the effectiveness of this tried and tested preventative medicine as exemplified by Jenner back in the late 18th Century.

The same cannot be said for the quackery that surrounds the scientifically untested homeopathy, and various other “alternative” or “complementary” therapies which, in my opinion provide only a placebo response at best,  but this got me thinking about all those old advertisements for patent medicines that filled the newspapers of the past.

It’s interesting just how many men from the Edwardian era seemed to require remedies from certain types of diseases, some real and others not so much 😉

Oh how things have changed… or have they?
