Now here is symbol that everyone sees at least once a week or so. It’s put on lots of things that the big pharmaceuticals sell. So … I got to thinking on the subject and decided to see what this symbol really means. Here is what it says and with that I will leave the rest of the story up to you. My Opinion Only
Here is the write-up on the subject. Everywhere in western medicine you find the Caduceus symbol: It’s the staff entwined with two serpents, with wings at the top. You’ll find it emblazoned on medical texts, medical school certificates, medical websites and even in hospitals and medical buildings.
But what does the symbol mean, exactly?
The Caduceus, it turns out, was a staff carried by the Greek god Hermes. Hermes is best known as the messenger of the gods, but he is also well known as the protector of liars, gamblers and thieves. He’s also prominently known as the guide of the dead.
