  • So wool on the body actually would cause the body to stay warm almost like a prototype wet suit in water so those people did not die from shock. They slipped and fell. This Ditch could have been lead to deep water and maybe he could not swim.. the woman could have been pulled by the current and or had slipped and choked to death on the water because she also could not swim. I’m willing to bet most of these people did not know how to tread let alone swim

  • Mercury cures: The term 'Mad as a hatter" (as in the Mad Hatter in Through the Looking Glass) was real--neurological damage due to hatters' use of mercury in creating felt for hats. It is also mentioned in Mark Twain's Roughing It as happening to silver miners refining their ore with mercury. It also lead to burns on firemen using wool coats using treated felt or mercury salts to waterproof the cloth.

  • Actually you're wrong about when and what was actually first used to cure syphilis. In 1917, Julius Wagner-Jauregg, a Viennese psychiatrist, began to treat syphilis with malaria. Malaria causes an extremely high body temperature. He would inject syphilis patients with malaria. Once the patient had three or four bouts of fever that was enough to kill the temperature-sensitive syphilis bacteria. So this was actually the cure for syphilis long before antibiotics were invented.

  • Teeth suck. If evolution is kind, humans will no longer have nerves in their teeth in the future, it is such an unnecessary literal pain and we need less ridiculous methods of breaking down food for consumption. Human dentition is so poorly designed, for the mouth to be such a festering nook of germs, that we have to scrub the daylights out of to not die from infections and the sheer aches involved.

  • No joke, at 30:35 I was genuinely saying out loud "Get her out of there!" Nearly saw her mouth go underwater. Obviously she was safe but still, please be careful. MNthe and informative videos are all well and good, but I'd rather you be safe as well. I know this is stupid, I'm sure she was safe, but seeing a person, especially a woman in that situation is very frightening.

Apparently my father never cleaned the chimney, along with something being built wrong or malfunctioning, fire shot out both sides. We never used it again after that.

  • Dental insurance isn't considered standard medical. Imagine getting a cavity treated and it's covered by your dental insurance BUT... goes wrong, you get an infection, specialists (also dental covered) have no idea it's there, doesn't show on the scans (dental covered), and you get worse for 2 years. Specialists (varying and dental covered) refuse to pull the tooth because it's not dead and won't solve the problem. You repeatedly see the doctor for antibiotics and steroids (health covered.) Finally, you end up in the ER for a raging jaw infection (also health covered.) More, harsher, antibiotics (also health covered.) That's thousands upon thousands of dollars, maybe $6k total, paid by your TWO DIFFERENT INSURANCES. You see someone out of pocket. You spend $2k on ozone treatments after he pulls and replaces the old filling. It was leaking and a mildly antibiotic resistant bacteria had moved in. You're cured and it's not covered because the USA is in the dark ages regarding ozone and dental. It would have cost less, $2k instead of $6k+$2, had it been treated early on BUT BECAUSE DENTAL AND HEALTH ARE SEPARATE, no one has realized the combined cost. Hence dental is not included in standard medical. (Btw, the cavity wasn't my fault. I had an underlying condition causing malabsorption of vitamin D.) People in the USA wonder why medical and dental costs are so high but the flaws in the system are extensive. Preventative dental saves money. Inclusive dental, such as ozone treatments, also saves money overall (but if not covered costs less for dental companies, meaning they can force the health system and you to pay out that finance instead.)
