ScienceQuest: Medical Quackery

The late 19th and early 20th century is considered the “Golden Age of Quackery”; a time when snake oil salesmen sold patent medicines to an unsuspecting public. This lecture presents many of the scientific and medical “quack” tonics and devices so prevalent during this time period as well as their modern counterparts. Can you tell scientific fact from fiction or will you fall prey to the snake oil hucksters of today?

Northern Essex Community College Professor Dr. Michael Cross will return for what is sure to be a very interesting discussion!
