Repost: MeatMD


My friend Dan is in medical school and finds time for a blog (incidentally, you can find him in my blogroll).  I’m reposting a recent entry of his because I think it’s really funny and his writing deserves the massive publicity that a repost here will bring.

Beef

There are some really awesome stories in the history of medicine, but I think my absolute favorite is Viagra. It was originally designed as a blood pressure med in Scotland, so they tested it on cows. Then they noticed a side effect in the cows that was medically referred to as, “hilarious”.
