Evil Air: A Story of Medicine

This book provides a popular overview of the most profound, surprising and useful discoveries that gave rise to modern medicine. Through remarkable stories of the most prominent researchers and their work, it explains the background to more than 110 Nobel Prizes awarded for Physiology or Medicine. It took human populations millennia to understand the inner structure and many functions of the human body, but most of the progress occurred relatively recently - i.e., since 1900. The book tells many interesting and inspiring stories behind the most significant discoveries during this period.
