WHAT DID HIPPOCRATES KNOW!

Hippocrates was born c. 460 bc , island of Cos, Greece.  He died c. 375 , Larissa, Thessaly.  He was the most famous ancient Greek physician who lived during Greece’s Classical period and is traditionally regarded as the father of medicin.
Here are some quotes from him.  Given our current knowledge, how would you say he did?

 

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.
Make a habit of two things: to help; or at least to do no harm.
Walking is man’s best medicine.
Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease.
Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.
It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.
There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance.
Life is short, the art long.
Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity.
Everything in excess is opposed to nature.

I’d say he did quite well.
It’s amazing, how ancient wisdom turns out to be right on!

COMPARING HEADLINES

It occurred to me that comparing headlines mightbe be yet another way to size up Presidential candidates.  This turned out to be a bit challenging:  I found two on Donald Trump right away, but had to do searches on the other three.  To keep thins fair, I used the same search engine.

One reason for finding news about Mr. Trump is that the media seems to consider him more entertaining.  (Just my observation)

 

So, here are two headlines for each candidate:

***

Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was arrested and charged in Jupiter, Florida, with simple battery of former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields, according to police.

Mr. Trump’s defense of his campaign manager shows his lack of judgement
