Back to the future. Fascinating article about the benefits of maggot therapy on wounds that will not heal. From the article:
“It’s strange, but some insurance companies will pay tens of thousands of dollars for an amputation, probably because it is so common nowadays, but will hesitate or object to paying $100 for a course of maggot therapy,” said Sherman, “even though studies repeatedly demonstrate that medicinal maggots have saved 40 to 50 percent of limbs otherwise scheduled for amputation due to non-healing wounds.”
Bring on the maggots!
