Content descriptions

General Note: Includes index.
Summary, etc.: "What won't we try in our quest for perfect health, beauty, and the fountain of youth? Packed with outlandish cures and outright scams, Quackery is a visually rich, humorously, macabre, smart, and lively journey into the dark side of medical history. Revisit a time when doctors prescribed morphine for crying infants, when snorting skull moss was a cure for bloody nose, and when dieters took to ingesting sanitized tapeworms. From monkey glands to blood jam, Quackery shows us that when it comes to health, humans will believe literally anything."-- Provided by publisher.
