Through the ages, hilarious, horrifying and preposterous cures have been foisted upon the gullible in their quest for good health. This fun look at medical history is a compendium of some of the most bizarre treatments, which will fascinate and astonish you. Many of the cures are beyond belief - for example: Mercury, now known to be highly toxic, was once thought to draw poison from the body, and was even administered for routine ills like constipation and toothaches; and Strappado, a technique in which patients are strapped to ladders and dropped from significant heights, was used to correct spinal misalignments. It is now considered torture.
