The science of medicine has certainly helped us over the ages. We went from the Bubonic plague taking out most of Europe to curing diseases with modern day medicine. I can thank modern medicine for reducing my constant headaches whileI was studying in college and juggling a full-time job, all while dealing with a sh*tty relationship.
