    I love how in the 20s, you could market and sell pretty much anything containing radium as a health cure, and people would buy it. And the FDA only cared about people selling fake devices that didn't produce *enough* radiation. One of the best schemes was that people thought that "good" water in certain natural springs had "magic" radiation in it, so people started making drinking vessels out of radium ore so you could tap all of the magic health benefits from home.
