Medical discoveries have benefitted countless lives over millennia and recent advances propelled by scientific innovation have increased the positive impact on the lives of the average person in modern times. With the ease of information available, members of the public are also aware of potential problems posed by diseases, medical conditions, and the ways they could be treated. Many treatments also have side-effects, which are not obvious to patients, and in several cases, require adequate medical supervision. The vast volume of available information, however, can be a lot to digest for many readers. Medicine Demystified is a series of books that explains medical knowledge, which may sound complex, in a simple manner for general readers. It presents accounts of impactful medical breakthroughs while separating myths from reality. Authored by Professor Peter Hollands, a prominent healthcare professional with decades of experience in the field of medicine, the series is essential to anyone who wishes to be informed about the history and advancements in modern medicine.
