Believe it or Not!

The first blood tranfusion recorded was given to a nine year old boy.  A pint of lamb's blood was delivered in an incision in the boys arm. The lad survived for several days.

The problem was, he only went to the doctor with a sore finger.

Believe it or Not!

The first contraceptive used by women was the rind of a lemon or orange cut in half. It was a diaphram of sorts.

It put a different spin on the wanton woman and the term Lemon Tart.

Believe it or Not!
