Castration of men was based on knowledge of the female body

For men with prostate problems, castration was a treatment method for many years. But in the early 20th century, decisions regarding castration were based on the belief that the prostate was the equivalent of the uterus in the woman. A new thesis from Linköping University contradicts the notion that in the history of medicine, men are the norm.

In short, I review clinical research on an almost daily basis. What I post tends to be articles that are relevant to the readers in addition to some curiosities that have intriguing potential. As a hobby, I truly enjoy the puzzle-solving play that statistics and programming as in the python language bring to the table. I just do not enjoy problem-solving, I love problem-solving and the childlike inspiration and exploration of that innocent exhilaration of discovering something new. Enjoy ;-)
