If anyone needs info on medical leeches, I have some. I did a search for the sake of curiosity. Please let me know and I'll be happy to share. :)

Bunch of bloodsuckers! They leech the stuff out of you.

They used to use them and some still do for blood letting. Ancient physicians used to think blood letting was a good way to help cure some ailments.

I know someone who used leeches to heal an inflammation of the Achilles tendon. It worked, whereas lots of other standard therapies, including physio, didn't.

lol, Mike...
ev, that's good news about how they can be used in these times. :)
Ken, Mr. Teabag and I have been watching "The Tudors." Leeches play prominent roles in several episodes where Henry's health concerns are addressed.
