Hippocrates was an ancient Greek physician who originated a code of medical ethics known as the Hippocratic Oath. In 2008, Royal Hope Hospital consultant B. Stoker noted to medical students under his supervision that Hippocrates recommended the ingestion of salt, particularly through the inhalation of steam from saltwater. Stoker then joked that "if he'd been afflicted with my students, his oaths might have been rather more colourful." (DW: "Smith and Jones")
