I never heard of barbers in the middle ages using leeches.
+1
level 42
Nov 24, 2017
It was common practice, based on humorism I believe (the belief that your mood and health was regulated by blood, yellow bile, black bile and phlegm). The idea was that the equilibrium between the 4 was broken. Or something. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leech#Medicinal_use_of_leeches

level 55
Nov 24, 2017
If the source of your confusion is "barber" rather than the use of leeches, they were more fully known as "barber surgeons". Normally based with a military, they use their blades for cutting limbs as well as hair, along with other medical practices of the time.

Shouldn't "Lipids" work for the macromolecule question? And "vocabulary" as an alternative to "words"?
+1
level 36
Nov 26, 2017
A better answer for the lexicon question would be "definitions."
+1

Agreed. Vocab* would also not be incorrect.
