1 OUT OF 10 DOCTORS RECOMMENDS: Drinking Urine, Eating Worms, and Other Weird Cures, Cases, and Research from the Annals of Medicine
The best and worst medical treatments recommended by 1 out of 10 doctors—told in strange, hilarious, and accessible essays
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 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 in these lighthearted mini essays.
3 out of 3 authors recommend that you read it immediately!
H. Eric Bender, M.D., divides his time between his private psychiatry practice in San Francisco, lecturing, and consulting with media outlets on popular culture and mental health.
Dr. Murdoc Khaleghi, M.D., splits his time between the emergency department, working with cool companies, and trying to stay warm during youth hockey games.
Dr. Bobby Singh, M.D., practices in a large teaching hospital, as well as maintaining a private practice in forensic psychiatry and geriatric psychiatry.
Praise for 1 Out of 10 Doctors Recommends:
*One of Bustle’s Nonfiction Books That You Need to Read This Summer*
The three coauthors, all physicians, entertainingly survey weird medical cases. Yes, surgeons actually grew a nose on a 22-year-old man’s forehead after an injury and infection left his existing sniffer too damaged to be surgically repaired. As the doctors note, some of the practices, treatments, and ideas they cover “are grounded in valid science and/or actually seem to work,” but others are “medical quackery.” Then there are the patients who self-inflict damage. One man inserted an eel into his bottom to treat his constipation. The authors give their chapters fun names, like “Honey, I Healed the Wound” for a short look at the antifungal and antibacterial effects of the bee-made sweetener. This is not for the easily offended. A case in point: the chapter titled, “Treating Hemorrhoids: A Real Pain in the Butt,” warns that anal intercourse can exacerbate the problem and advises readers to “maybe reconsider whether an intimate entrance up your exit ramp is a good idea.” Skeptics will be heartened to see the “references” section at the end of this wow-inducing overview of medical bizarreness.
