Did prehistoric people and the ancient civilizations understand health and disease? Did they make any advances in medical knowledge? This book explains how humans faced new challenges when they began to live together in large communities. It shows how some physicians realized that disease might have natural causes, not supernatural ones, and so could be treated by natural methods and prevented by improving public health.
