Autopsy Reports Reveal Tragic Details

AUTOPSY IS OLD, THOUGH NOT AS OLD AS HUMAN HISTORY.

ACCORDING TO BRITANNICA, GALEN OF PERGAMUM WAS THE FIRST TO DISSECT A HUMAN TO DISCOVER ANATOMY & HOW INTERNAL THINGS GENERATE SURFACE SYMPTOMS.

NOT EVERY CULTURE APPROVES OF DISMEMBERING A CORPSE FOR SCIENCE. 

DURING THE MIDDLE AGES, IT WAS FORBIDDEN IN ROMAN, CHINESE, & MUSLIM STATES. 

BY THE EARLY 1800S, CUTTING OPEN THE DEAD TO LOOK ABOUT HAD BECOME STANDARD MEDICAL PRACTISE.

PEOPLE REALISED IT MAY HELP BRING CLOSURE, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE REASON OF DEATH WAS UNKNOWN.

MEDICAL EXAMINERS DIDN'T GET GOOD UNTIL MUCH LATER, & AUTOPSY REPORTS WEREN'T USUALLY ACCURATE.

EVEN AFTER A PRESIDENT'S DEATH, AUTOPSIES WEREN'T A GIVEN.

WARREN G. HARDING'S ABRUPT & UNEXPLAINED DEATH PROMPTED SPECULATION THAT HIS WIFE POISONED HIM.

 AUTOPSY FINDINGS SOMETIMES REVEAL HORRIBLE MEDICAL TRUTHS. OTHER PRESIDENTS' AUTOPSY REVEALED THESE DETAILS.
