  • Published 1 year ago

It is just remarkable how far our medicine and technology have come. Some 100 years ago, people were dying because of the common cold. The flu virus was causing epidemics. Nowadays, we can easily even treat flu viruses with home remedies.

This documentary explores three remarkable stories of medical progress. The first one is cancer, the second one is HIV/AIDS, and the last one is surgery.

Truth be told, we still do not have clear cut cure for cancer. But we are getting there. If you believe in conspiracies, you might even think that pharmaceutical companies are hiding the cure.

But that aside, it is just amazing to see how much our research, clinical practice, and patient care have evolved over the past several years.

When Magic Johnson was diagnosed with HIV in the early 1990s, people thought he would be dead. But he is still going strong, and is one of the biggest advocates and loudest voices for HIV.
