MEDICAL REVOLUTION

The medical revolution began approximately around the 1800s, until the 20th

destruction. However, before anyoneor anything was able to advance the world
in the topic of medicine, the world was quite a sad place to live in. Anything
was able to conquer and take someones life away in one second bacause the
world didn´t have the technologies and tools at the time.

Discoveries of the medical revolution
It all started with the Birth of Hippocrates. Hippocrates was a greek physician
and is considered the father of the medicine. He first believed and accepted
that diseases result from an imbalance of the four bodily humors. After
Hippocrates came the birth of galen,considered by many to be the most
important contributor to medicine. In 1670, Anton Van Leeuwenhoek refines the
microscope and fashions nearly 500 models. He also is know for discovering
blood cells and observing animal and plant tissues and microorganisms .
