Fly maggots used to be a somewhat common method of treating infections. Maggots were placed in diseased tissue. Maggots will not eat living dissue but will eat necrotic tissue [dead and dying flesh]. Whn the dead tissue, which might have ben difficult to remove surgically, was removed by the maggots, then the maggots were removed.
It is such an effective method that it was quite commonly used at the K building at the Indiana University Medical Center when I first starting working there in 1965.
I thought a person had to be dead before maggots would move in.
Nice how they treat vets. Imagine hwo society will treat us as we get older. It will only get worse. Today most people are very "me" oriented and have NO value or respect for life other than their own.
