Pardon me but how do you know what they knew or did not know medically?  Do 
you not think that simple observation would have led them to know when to 
do things and when not to?  Or did God have to tell them when to plant 
crops too?  How stupid were they?  By the way, I don't think they were 
stupid at all.  In fact I think many ancient Israelites were a sight 
smarter than lots of people today.

Huh?  What does the second part of your statement have to do with the first?
