The mice has been extensively used in ancient times as a healing remedy; Claudius Galenus (AD 129-200) quoted from Cleopatra’s book on cosmetics: “The following is the best of all, acting for fallen hairs ... Of domestic mice burnt, one part...”
It is clear, however, that chopped up mice is not an effective remedy. I need a citable source (preferably an article) that critiques the use of a mouse as a remedy. Due to the obscure nature of my query, google searches haven't been able to find me any critiques.
Can someone point me to a modern article that refutes or praises the ancient use of a mouse as a remedy?
