过去的医学(下)


Baldness 秃头


OK, it's not really a disease at all. But men whose hair is falling out are never happy about it, are they? The ancient Egyptians had the solution. What did they use to do? They took the fat of a lion, a hippopotamus, a cat and a snake, mixed them together-and then rubbed the mixture into the man's head. Maybe it stopped baldness, maybe not-but the man's head certainly didn't smell too good afterwards!

好吧,这根本不是什么疾病。但是那些脱发的男人从来都不高兴,对吗?古埃及人有解决办法。他们过去做什么?他们把一头狮子、一头河马、一只猫和一条蛇的脂肪混合在一起,然后把混合物擦到这个人的头上。也许它停止了秃头,也许不是,但男人的头后来肯定不太好闻!


Scrofula 淋巴结


The Middle Ages was a time when there was a common skin disease called scrofula. (We won't go into the details, OK?) People who had scrofula could easily get rid of it-they just had to get the king or queen to touch them! (The question is: why would a king or queen want to touch a person who had a skin disease?)

中世纪是一种常见的皮肤病,称为淋巴结。(我们不谈细节了,好吗?)那些有这个皮肤病的人可以很容易地摆脱它:他们只需要让国王或王后来摸一摸!(问题是:国王或王后为什么要碰一个有皮肤病的人?)
