    It would be hilarious if I wasn’t imagining desperate family members who would have taken that advice – from a doctor for heavens sake – to heart. How do you find these interesting tid bits?

      The only comfort for people who might have tried the ridiculous cure is that it probably wasn’t harmful at least.

      I used to run another kind of blog earlier that was among other things full of strange bits like that. The blog is till online even though I don’t update it anymore and sometimes I pick a blog from the blogroll on that blog and browse it for a while. “Centuries of Advice & Advertisements” is one of the blogs on that list.
