Edible Medicines Book Study Vol's 4 & 5, Food in the History of Biomedicine - We continue our intense reading, study and cross-referencing of this inspiring book.  Chapter 2 is an examination of the role of biomedicine in the history of documented, science-based health advancement.  While my criticism of the book is notably how, like too many other researchers, the author has overlooked the critical role that Nile Valley civilizations contributed to this body of biomedical science, nonetheless there is a lot of valuable insight to be found in this chapter.  Having overlooked both the African and ancient Chinese contributions, the author begins with Hippocrates, other Greeks, and their preservation / interpretation of that which came before them.  While we can most certainly appreciate the contribution of the Greek Hippocrates, we do correct the record to emphasize that he studied at the school of Aesculapius, which began as the deification of the very-real person Imhotep.  From the rise of Hippocrates forward, others built upon and clarified this work with strong emphasis on the role of food, diet and comprehension of how the body's systems are nutrition-dependent.  The fact is, most diseases and disorders still remain the outcome of controllable factors such as diet, hygiene and lifestyle. (LIBMP3-3807D)
