Medical Miscellany

Do you know: How to tell if a murder victim was left- or right-handed? More than 100 euphemisms for unmentionable parts of the body? Who has played Doc Holliday in the movies? Which famous doctor shares your birthday? (though we couldn't quite find someone for every day of the year…) Read this book to see if you have the right answer. This fascinating collection of medically related items will give you a perspective on medicine and health care not available from other books. After much dipping in and out, or from referring to the topic-based index, you will know what 100% proof really means for an alcohoic drink and how you are likely to feel if you drink Ayahuasca. You will also know when two doctors in Casualty earnestly discuss your 'UBI' they have smelt your breath and are talking about your 'unexplained beer injury'.
