   过去的医学(上)



Medicine in the past

过去的医学(上)


Since the beginning of time, people have had illnesses and doctors have tried to cure them. In the days when people knew very little about medicine, some very strange and horrible cures were tried. Here are some of the worst!

从古至今,人们都有疾病,医生们也在努力治愈它们。在人们对医学知之甚少的年代,人们尝试了一些非常奇怪和可怕的疗法。这里有一些最糟糕的!


Toothache 牙疼


Ancient Egyptians who had toothache didn't use to go to the dentist because there weren't any dentists in those days. So they used to find a dead mouse and put it in their mouth. They left it there for a few hours. Did it take the toothache away? Who knows?! But aren't you happy that there's a dentist near you?

在过去,古埃及人牙痛的时候不去看牙医,因为那时没有牙医。所以他们常常找一只死老鼠放进嘴里。他们把老鼠放在嘴里几小时。是吗它能消除牙痛吗?谁知道?!难道你不高兴有牙医在你身边吗?


Backache 背痛


Backache is no fun at all-people who suffer from it have a lot of pain. Sometimes it's because a vertebra(a bone in the back)is out of position. In ancient Greece, doctors used to cure backache like this: they tied the patient to a ladder, pulled the ladder up high and then let it fall to the ground. Bang! The vertebra went back into place. Well, that was the idea, but this 'cure' probably just made the backache worse!

背痛一点也不好玩,受背痛折磨的人有很多痛苦。有时是因为脊椎骨(背部的骨头)错位了。在古希腊,医生治疗背痛的方法是这样的:他们把病人绑在梯子上,把梯子拉高,然后让梯子掉到地上。砰!脊椎骨恢复了原位。好吧,这是个主意,但这种“治疗”可能只会让背痛加重!
