Historic Biomedicine Resources
Biomedicine is also known as theoretical medicine. Biomedicine is more concerned with the research and theory of medicine, rather than the practice of medicine. Biomedicine incorporates the research and knowledge of both medicine and biology. The study of biomedicine often results in new drugs and a deeper understanding of diseases and the way they can be treated and diagnosed. Biomedicine research can result in new vitamins, homeopathic herbs, amino acids, and other products that are natural. The majority of these products are not regulated and no prescription is needed.
