in hac artium sola evenit ut cuicumque medicum se professo statim credatur, cum sit periculum in nullo mendacio maius –> the medical profession is the only one in which anybody professing to be a physician is at once trusted, although nowhere else is an untruth more dangerous | this is the only one of the arts in which the moment a man declares himself to be an adept, he is at once believed, there being at the same time no imposture, the results of which are more fraught with peril

όποιος διατείνεται ότι είναι γιατρός, αμέσως γίνεται πιστευτός, ενώ στην ουσία δεν υπάρχει πιο επικίνδυνο ψέμα
