    People lived past 30. There was high infant mortality. So the average is 30. There were many old people but you first had to make it through childhood without modern hospitals.

    Those poor Radium Girls, worked the war effort painting gauge and dial faces with glow in the dark Radium, they were taught to lick the brushes to keep the fine point before dipping. Absolutely horrible what happened to them

  16. xxdvisy on June 14, 2022 at 5:25 am

    Me and my brother used to have to share bath water, because it took less time than 2 baths.

  20. Jonathan Port on June 14, 2022 at 5:28 am

    Still no toilet paper in india. Water!!

  21. Richard Webb on June 14, 2022 at 5:29 am

    Facile, misleading and/or incorrect ‘facts’. Just a few of the dubious highlights: Chūgi: a small block of wood used to clean one’s buttocks after defecating – not ‘sticks’. Back in what ‘day’, ‘back when’?- where? The ‘medieval’ practice of cauterizing shows a picture from the late 18th century. Leeches work, and are still used in some parts of the world. Lead does not contain trace rather than ‘high’ levels of arsenic – and lead is poisonous with or without arsenic. Suggestion is made that no utensils were in use until the 16th century – utensils were used in Ancient Greece and by Ancient Romans. Knives have been in use throughout early modern history. The fork was introduced to Europe in the 10th century 10th century by Theophanu Byzantine wife of Emperor Otto the 2nd, and had become popular before well before the 16thc. Louis Pasteur ‘made his discovery’ of what? Who was acknowledged Semmelweis or Pasteur? Radium – what people, where? Commentary is breathless and too fast. Best stick to celebrity trivia.

    Always had to smell my dad’s butt and breath because of covid he lost his sence o smell. He weighs 600 lb so there’s a lot of funk. You get used to it after a while

  23. stevekap8 on June 14, 2022 at 5:33 am

    Something is both sterile, and contains bacteria… Ok

  24. Dirt Farmer on June 14, 2022 at 5:33 am

    My boyfriend wipes his butt before oral anal which makes zero amount of sense, like taking the icing off a cake before you eat it.

  25. Ninja Gaming on June 14, 2022 at 5:34 am

    Has anyone noticed the devil head

  26. Lara Palma on June 14, 2022 at 5:35 am

    Lots of misinformation, pairing portraits from the 16th century while narrating about the dark ages etc
    Absolute bollocks

  27. Satguy141 on June 14, 2022 at 5:36 am

    The leading cause of death in the 1800’s was infections.

  28. HAL HITCHCOCK on June 14, 2022 at 5:38 am

    😂 crazy as wearing a mask.

  29. Michael Ciarla on June 14, 2022 at 5:38 am

    "It’s a fork. I got ten forks right here baby!".. Sorry, I thought about that commercial.

  30. LightBlue2222 on June 14, 2022 at 5:41 am

    So back then deathly pale skin with pitch black teeth were beautiful 😍


  31. none on June 14, 2022 at 5:41 am

    This is all very, very innacurate.

  32. chris Eiden on June 14, 2022 at 5:42 am

    Most shocking was that they didn’t have toilet paper. How is a twig going to keep you clean? I bet people smelled bad.

  33. Speedy Steve on June 14, 2022 at 5:42 am

    Lead contains high levels of arsenic? Lead contains high levels of lead. Now get back to your cultural studies class.

  34. Amy Stone on June 14, 2022 at 5:44 am

    The term "don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater." Come from the centuries of the baby always being last to be bathed in shared bath water. Families were huge(10 or more children depending) and dad always got first water. Then all the way down to youngest last. I know they didn’t know about germs but one would think it best to wash baby early when the water isn’t freezing at least

    CORRECTION NEEDED 6:25. It is incorrect to say a a side affect of exposure to electromagnetic radiation causes hair removal. That refers to a broad spectrum only part of which is associated with hair loss. Not only is this poor grammar it is factually inaccurate. The electromagnetic spectrum is made of both ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. X-Rays are ionizing and as such exposure to it damages DNA and the affects are cumulative. Radio Frequency radiation is non-ionizing and does not displace DNA but it can heat tissue. non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation like sunlight or radio signals have never been associated with hair loss. So your statement is inaccurate as its true of x-rays its not true of radio waves or visible light both of which are electromagnetic waves.

  36. ThePeaceableKingdom on June 14, 2022 at 5:45 am

    "Lead contains high levels of arsenic" No. The makeup contained *_white lead_* which is highly poisonous.

  37. Solitaire bun on June 14, 2022 at 5:46 am

    Him: Eating with hands

    Many Arabs and Asians still eat with their hands. I like to eat a curry with my hands actually.
    You didn’t mention urine was used to tan leather. Thr workers in that induatry were called Tanners.

  39. Edwin A on June 14, 2022 at 5:48 am

    what happened to the woman playing pool

  40. Mik Mik on June 14, 2022 at 5:48 am

    AVERAGE AGE 30, Think about it. With so many dead babies at or near birth and people who live into their 60+ years, the AVERAGE AGE is easily 30. It does not mean people only lived to around 30.

  41. Deon White on June 14, 2022 at 5:49 am

    Wow I’am glad that that I have found this video topic on YouTube

  42. Somnath Ghosh on June 14, 2022 at 5:49 am

    Toilet paper? Hygienic? EEK!!! that also with no washing after wards! Hygienic is either using a bidet or a jet.

  43. English .Gentleman on June 14, 2022 at 5:50 am

    Many families even today share bath water

  44. stevekap8 on June 14, 2022 at 5:52 am

  45. swinnart on June 14, 2022 at 5:54 am

    My wife has excellent birth control, it’s called get off and stay off.

  50. Nonya Damnbusiness on June 14, 2022 at 5:58 am

    Why do you think lead must have arsenic in it to be toxic? Both are heavy metals, both are toxic and common sources of heavy metal poisoning.
