Description
Medical Reference Publication

Excerpt
In 1753, James Lind, a Scottish naval surgeon and medical graduate of Edinburgh University, published a 450-page, threepart Treatise of the scurvy (1). At that time, scurvy was killing thousands of people every year and was responsible for many more deaths of sailors in the Royal Navy than enemy action. Believing that one of the reasons there was so much confusion about the diagnosis, prevention and cure of scurvy was that “no physician conversant with this disease at sea had undertaken to throw light upon the subject”, Lind set about filling this gap, with a clearly stated commitment to base his work on “observable facts” rather than on the theories that dominated medical decision-making at that time.
