Incredible Discoveries of Medical Science

If you hadn’t noticed, some truly significant discoveries in medical science. Recent history has felt like a whirlwind, with the global economic crash, a seemingly endless cycle of revolutions and wars, viral epidemics, natural disasters and massive leaps forward for technology.
