Bayer "invented" aspirin right?

But did you know they also "invented" heroin?

Who thinks this is true?

Show of hands (or in Wolfie's case, paws).


Jay A, you get an A. For smartness, that is.

Is smartness a word?

Update 2:

Thank you Alex.

    Studies have shown that taking aspirin with the first signs of a heart attack decreases the chance of death by 50%. Who really cares how the information is being disseminated. All that matters is that the public becomes aware of this simple, yet potentially life saving measure. Does it have to be bayer? No.

    In his search for an effective and better tolerated antirheumatic for his father, Bayer chemist Dr. Felix Hoffmann synthesises acetylsalicylic acid (ASA), the active ingredient in Aspirin®, in a chemically pure and stable form for the first time.

    The opium poppy was cultivated in lower Mesopotamia as long ago as 3400 BC.[4] The chemical analysis of opium in the 19th century revealed that most of its activity could be ascribed to two ingredients, codeine and morphine.

    Heroin was first processed in 1874 by C.R. Alder Wright, an English chemist working at St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London
