Did you know...
... that today is the birthday of Insulin? Frederick Banting,
a Canadian doctor, and his assistant Charles Best discovered insulin on this day in 1921. On January 23, 1922, the first successful test on a human patient with diabetes occurred.
Insulin was given to Leonard Thompson, and his condition
improved dramatically in just a few hours. Thank you, Dr. Banting and company!
