Launched over 100 years ago in the Bayer laboratories, Germany, Aspirin is still the biggest selling drug in history. According to historical records, a German chemist synthesized aspirin in its pure form in 1897, but new evidence has been uncovered which strongly suggests that it was a German Jew who discovered the new wonder drug.
