SLICKO'S REAL MEDICAL WONDERS

Outstanding! I just LOVE the kind of puzzle where I learn something new. One or two facts really suprised me. OK - My thinking quota for the day has been met. Thanks, Slicko!

Absolutely fabulous, Gary! One we got only a "nursie" could get but my music husband got it before me. Excellent job.

Thank you Slicko for a wonderful, informative Puzzle

Great puzzle! Knew some of the answers and liked learning what I didn't know. Well crafted with clever clues.

Slicko gave us another great puzzle to ponder; to wonder; for some to blunder.

Mostly we learned about some great medical wonders.

We live longer lives because of science.

Thanks folks for all the nice comments. And Barry I did at least click on one wrong letter so I blew 100 points on my own puzzle!
P.S. Sorry Rowlanda but I bet you got all the tougher ones. There are several recongizable folks mixed in with the less well known.

Thanks for your WP, Brother Slicko, very well-done indeed. I just barely got in before it expired, and glad I was able to do so.

I knew all of mine and I did the puzzle late - but for some reason everyone I knew decided to call - and I kept praying I wouldn't time out. I had to ask my callers several times to repeat something - and gave several "uh huh - yeah" verbal answers as I tried to concentrate - good one!

Kaelin....
suggest you use an answering machine while doing WPs....
I have a favorite programme which airs 7PM to 7.30Pm
So guess when everyone calls or comes to the door....
Have watched that show for 48 years and heaven help
anyone who comes between us!!!!
Have learned to either tape it, or isolate myself....

OC...
I did get a couple of parts with well known
people like B&B, but the others had unkown
foreign names (maybe American Immigrants)
whom I had no ideas about or how to spell.
Twice had to use almost ALL my letters....
Plus, who knew Christiaan had two "a"s in it.

Here's the puzzle and clues:
Levi's : Watson and Crick are both credited with discovering the structure of DNA
Superman: Wilhelm Roentgen won the first Nobel prize in physics for discovering x-rays
Fluke: Alexander Fleming considered his discovery of penicillin an accident
Can you hear me now?: Rene Laennec was a French physician who invented the stethoscope
(probably the toughest puzzle for non-medical folks and for those who avoid the temptation to Google)
Broken?: The first heart transplant was performed in South Africa by Christiaan Barnard
Unselfish act: Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine but declined to patent it
Swish and spit: Joseph Lister is regarded as the father of antiseptic surgery
Old Yeller: The first rabies vaccine was one of several contributions of Louis Pasteur
How sweet it is: Insulin was codiscovered by Canadians Banting and Best
Appropriately named: The discovery of oxygen is credited to British minister Joseph Priestly

Thanks again to all who took it. Got a couple ideas for the next one - won't be medical - and no opera either!
