Dr. Joel Wallach begins the show discussing "failed medical theories". Doc states that early man believed that illness was caused by evil spirits. Then it was good and bad "humours", after that an imbalance of "biles". After the discovery of bacteria it was thought all disease was caused by bacteria. Once viruses were discovered that of course they were the cause of disease. Later the human genome was mapped out and genetics are now the cause.
