It doesn't specify who was the original author of this quote but I thought it was funny/though provoking enough to be worthy of posting.
'A Short History of Medicine:
2000 BC: Here, eat this root.
AD 1000: That root is heathen, say this prayer.
1850: That prayer is superstition, drink this potion.
1940: That potion is snake oil, take this pill.
1985: That pill is ineffective, take this antibiotic.
2000: That antibiotic is artificial. Here, eat this root.'
