Cool Science: Cutting-Edge Medicine
Imagine that you have a deadly infection, and your doctor gives you medicine made from lizard spit. Or a dog attack destroys your face, so doctors peel it off and stitch on a transplant. Or you wake up from surgery only to find leeches feasting on you. Where are you? Ancient Egypt? Frankenstein's lab? No, you're in the twenty-first century, and this is cutting-edge medicine! This book explains the many amazing ways new medical techniques are helping people live longer, healthier lives.
