How the term quack was originally conceived   by #87118   14 year 1 of 1 (100%)

I saw this on a documentary the other day.

During the great plague and other diseases physicians would practice their art wearing a mask shaped like a ducks bill, filled with all manner of herbs and spices to keep the diseases at bay.

This is how the term quack was originally conceived - and has been used ever since to describe medical practitioners of all kinds.
