Medical History and Impacting Inventions
Transcript of Medical History and Impacting Inventions
Vesalius discovered the true human anatomy. This was a huge discovery and would have a lasting impact for thousands of years after his findings because it lead us to discovering many different things like the steps to digestion, how our bones move, and many other things. At the age of just twenty-five, he proved the originally thought founder of the human anatomy, Galen, wrong. The reason why Galen was wrong was because Galen observed and trialed on apes, Vesalius observed and trialed on humans. Because of his findings, he has published many books relating to medical information.
