While you may not always look like it, we’ve come a long way since the time of our ancestors – and their ancestors. Our knowledge is always improving and we use that to enhance everything from our level of medical care to the food we eat and the toys we play with. This means that we can look back into our past and see some pretty disturbing stuff. What do we mean? Well, in the ‘olden times’ certain medical practices and beliefs were just downright scary. In the 1940s and 50, toys and education about radiation were comically wrong. Even up to today, we bet there are things you do or believe that are just ill-informed – but you think they are safe to use or follow. Take a look at our latest video and see what sorts of things our parents, grandparents and their ancestors use to think were totally normal. We bet it’ll make you glad you live in the 21st century.
