Return of the Maggot

As much as modern science has contributed to the field of medicine, it has not yet found a solution to every problem nor a cure for every illness. So what do you do when you have tried all the new miracle drugs without success, you return to the old ways.

With recent FDA approval, doctors have begun using maggots to clean the wounds of patients who have not responded to modern treatment. Apparently they are seeing great success.

Maggots aren't the only medieval cure to make a comeback. Leeches have gained FDA approval as well.
