Knee osteoarthritis has more than doubled in prevalence since the mid-20th century after occurring at low frequencies since prehistoric times, a study has found.
Researchers from Harvard University and other centers concluded that rising levels of knee osteoarthritis may be the result of modifiable risk factors, such as high body mass index (BMI), and may be more preventable than previously thought.
Researchers studied cadaver-derived skeletal remains to investigate long-term trends in knee osteoarthritis prevalence in the United States and evaluate the effects of longevity and BMI on disease levels by comparing the prevalence among persons who lived in the 19th to early 20th centuries with persons in the late 20th to early 21st centuries. The researchers also analyzed knee osteoarthritis in a large sample of archaeological skeletons of prehistoric Native American hunter-gatherers and early farmers.

One-hundred-twenty-two years ago, 1895, was the same year that x-rays were discovered. At that time, health care was provided by a diverse group of unregulated and unlicensed professions, these included osteopaths, magnetic healers, and “medical” doctors.   In those days, most medical education consisted of working as an “apprentice” for a medical doctor, and learning the craft by observation.

D.D. Palmer, the Father of Chiropractic, was a magnetic healer,  with a huge practice in Davenport, Iowa.   He had doubts about the “germ theory” as the complete explanation for the cause of all disease. After all, if germs kill… shouldn’t we all be dead?   He asked himself: “how it was that two brothers could work in the same shop, eat the same food, sleep in the same bed, and that one would succumb to a disease while the other one would not”?
