    Description
    'Blood & Guts' explores the many ingenious, curious and often gruesome ways in which humankind has fought disease over the ages: from Ayurvedic remedies to antibiotics, from blood-letting to X-rays, from crude amputations to organ transplants.

    With an extraordinary cast of barber surgeons, quacks, apothecaries, witch-doctors and anatomists, this is an eye-opening, humorous and often terrifying look at our ongoing quest for immortality.
