What won't we try in our quest for perfect health, beauty, and the fountain of youth? Packed with outlandish cures and outright scams, Quackery is a visually rich, humorously macabre, smart, and lively journey into the dark side of medical history. Revisit a time when doctors prescribed morphine for crying infants, when snorting skull moss was a cure for a bloody nose, and when dieters too to ingesting sanitized tapeworms. From monkey glands to blood jam, Quackery shows us that when it comes to health, humans will believe literally anything.
