Remember the Middle Ages? Neither do I, but rest assured, it sucked. They may have had mead, wenches and awesome sword fights, but they also had famine, plague and awful medical care. It’s worse than you think, trust me. We’re going to have a picture demonstration that will show history really, really sucks. Let’s keep the future going, shall we?
Cavities were handled the same way flesh wounds in the Civil War were.
Eagle poop had healing properties. Not …
Lead was EVERYWHERE
Candle smoke killed tooth worms.
What the hell is a Tooth Worm?
Sulphur was thought to be able to remove freckles.
By rubbing it in.
Tampons came from … Wherever you could find them.
Urine was a face-wash!
Wigs were huge, fashionable and covered in lice.
Infections were solved in the most Kick Ass of ways.
Sweet, sweet technology.
