The Cause of the Disease!

Hippocrates (460-377 BC), father of medical science, was the first doctor who rejected the superstition and the supernatural, or magical, explanations for various diseases.

For many physiological changes in the human body, Hippocrates gave detailed explanations. However, there was one very interesting detail among those explanations.

He believed that, the most common causes of disease in humans were climate,  bad nutrition, but also the inability of state government.
