In our lifetimes we have seen some amazing advances in medical treatment in technology, medicines and our understanding of disease. The link below leads to an interesting article on "barbaric" medical treatments from the past and how they are used today. While they may be used for entirely different reasons, they have a place in modern medicine. I would like to be around in 50 years to see how barbaric and primitive our current medical practices look to people in 2066.
