Music: "Medicines" by The Taxpayers
I am not sure if this is a large enough topic to make an entire podcast, but thought I'd mention it. Digitus Medicus was the name for what we call the ring finger. The Romans and later people in the middle ages believed they could diagnosis by using this finger of the patient to assess their condition. Thought if there is enough on it, this could be an interesting myth or medical misinformation topic. Love the show. Congtats on the new baby. Allan Gerson
