Did You Know?

"Although you can no longer buy Stanley's Snake Oil, other potions once marketed as patent medicines are still available (minus the health claims): Coca-Cola, Dr Pepper, 7UP, Angostura
Bitters, and tonic water."
-- Gene Stone, The Secrets of People Who Never Get Sick, xv

The book is a quirky compilation of the health strategies of 25 people who don't get sick.  From the common sense to the bizarre, and including the contradictory, it's an eclectic mix.

  1. I knew Dr. Pepper and tonic water were originally medicinal. Didn't know that about Coca-cola though. Interesting!
