Gross!

If you're eating anything, we recommend you stop because it's time to talk about gross bugs.

Maggots to be specific.

Maggot therapy was first used in the time of Napoleon, and through the civil war and world war one.

What happens is when maggots are placed in an open or necrotic wound, they feed on only dead flesh, leaving healthy flesh untouched.

It was a great way to clean wounds until penicillin was found.

In 1989, maggot therapy was reintroduced when a doctor set up a breeding facility for medical maggots.

Studies actually found that using maggots was more effective than any surgical treatment normally used to clean wounds that won't heal.

Maggot therapy is actually often used today!

So, would you try maggot therapy?

We think we'd stick to surgical procedures.
