Type of Source: Picture/ Date of Origin: 1920/ The discovery of insulin in 1922 was a breakthrough in medical science. Fredrick Banting and J.R.R Macleod had discovered the cure. Before the discovery of insulin in the early 1900's, the only treatment were starvation diets and strict exercise regimens. The first test was done on a diabetic boy named Leonard Thompson. It was a success. The picture here shows Banting working in his office.
