Modern medicine sees filthy blood as a good thing

Occasionally, quack medical practices take hold and become accepted as state-of-the-art science. This happened when doctors commonly employed leeches to bleed people as a way of curing or preventing illnesses. Lots of people died. Of course, now we have vaccination. But instead of removing your blood, the idea is to contaminate your blood. For some strange medieval reason, modern medicine views contaminating one’s blood with attenuated viruses, toxic chemicals, heavy metals, and foreign DNA matter, as well as tons of unfiltered trash, as a brilliant thing. I think I’ll take the leeches, please.
