Most people assume that “butcher-surgeons” disappeared around 200 years ago. They are in fact quite common in rural Africa, Asia, and South America. Meet
Gamar, a Sudanese camp refugee. By day he slaughters goats and cows. By night he fixes compound fractures and other serious injuries. His secret weapon? He wraps the wound in a raw chicken skin. (3:55, for those of you who don't have time to watch the entire 4.5 minute video)
So here's my question: I've seen fresh chicken skins used on three different continents. I can think of no earthly reason why it would help (and several reasons why it would hurt). Am I missing something?
video contains graphic footage, which probably isn't an issue for you guys.
This group was very courteous, interested, and added considerably to my knowledge the last time I posted a video. I've been looking forward to getting another one published ever since.
