Did you know that the very first clinical trial was recorded in the Old Testament?

Versus 12 – 15 in the Book of Daniel outlines that King Nebuchadnezzar the second served his prisoners a diet of meat and wine. Daniel however only ate bread and water (not sure why he had the option) but any way, he looked much healthier than the rest of his inmates. The king suspected that his diet may have something to do with his health so he switched his prisoners over to the bread and water diet and indeed, they became healthier.

Many regard this as the very first recorded clinical trial.
