Often people debate about what will be a first significant sign of a civilization. Some thinkers believe Agriculture was an important steps while others believe invention of wheel started the process of settling down. Today, we bring you a different approach to settle this long standing debate.
The first sign of a successful civilization that put Humans a notch above the other animals is the practice of Medicine, our ability to fix tissues, bones and take overall care of our kind.
The way the entire animal kingdom works is simple – If you can run to hunt or run to avoid being eaten – you will survive. Going by that principle, if primitive human would break their leg, they would not be able to hunt. They would slow the pace of their tribe, eventually leading to their destruction.
However, if a fellow tribe member could do surgery to fix their broken leg, feed them food when they are recovering, give them #medication for pain relief and faster recovery, the entire tribe would benefit.
The people in the entire civilization would prosper more because they would not lose members just because of broken bones and other “fixable” issues. That’s the impact of medicine, it gave us our ability to live life against the brutal forces of Nature.
Our Medicos not only keep our loved ones safe, but they also contribute in the most efficient way to keep our kind, our civilization going. And for that, we are indebted to our Doctors.
HarborSays, we should be thankful to our doctors for keeping our humankind going.
