I saw it too. Very interesting and very disturbing. Just goes to show you how the practice of modern medicine is still not very far removed from the days when it was thought that draining a persons blood was a cure for almost anything. Or, for that matter, jabbing an icepick into someones brain was a cure for mental illness. Thank goodness for modern science.
