Have you ever wondered what that 1 outlier would say when you see commercials and products boasting that 9 out of 10 doctors recommend something? Well here's your answer...?/ Three doctors explore and explain the least recommended techniques and cures lurking in the darkest corners of medicine through the ages. Entertaining and informative, (and sometimes just plain gross), 1 Out of 10 Doctors Recommends examines the strangest and most unusual medical practices, including drinking your own urine to fight infection, using live eels to relieve constipation, and licking a patient's head to diagnose cystic fibrosis. As licensed medical physicians who believe that humor is the best medicine, the authors decode the methods behind the seemingly mad science. Fascinating examples include: * the use of bee venom to treat herpes * infecting yourself with intestinal parasites to relieve allergies * "natural" ways to make your genitalia larger * how the insertion of a potato reportedly stops post-delivery bleeding * the effects of salt pork on a sore throat * the supposed benefits of "vampire facials"
