Synopsis: Burch’s controversial argument is that for most of human history medicine has been a catastrophe, and emphasizes how little and how much has changed, and how we need to make educated choices about the risks we swallow. Only then can the drugs of today and tomorrow save our lives.

About the Author: Druin Burch, 34, has worked in hospitals across south-east England. He teaches human evolution, physiology and ecology at Oxford and writes for medical journals, the Times Literary Supplement and the Guardian. This is his first book.
