By the way, you know those paintings with guys wearing these huge and elaborate wigs? Those wigs were usually covered with lice and nits. However, if you wanted to sport your own hair and were bald, the next best thing besides wigs was chicken poop. It was supposed to cure baldness. Just wait until you find out what they used as tampons, contraception, and dental hygiene! Check out these 25 gross hygiene practices you won’t believe were real.

Urine may be sterile as far as living organisms go, but I assure all, urine contains a LOT of what a human body does not need which can do harm. That's why the body is eliminating those toxins through urination. So people, stop peeing on each other already. lmao

my mother was born on a farm and they had indoor plumbing course. Is she was born in 1933 and they all had a chamber pot in each bedroom it was kept under the bed. I think of it as the first commode. They didn't dump it out the window though they took it to the bathroom all the Outhouse I think the bathroom and flushed it . also there was a standing rule that if you had to go poo then you didn't use the chamber pot. You could use it for urine and if you got sick. I don't think it's a horrible thing at all. I get sick quite a bit and I have to grab the living room trash can I would much rather have a chamber pot because sometimes I can't get to the bath as I am in a wheelchair.

My brother had horrible nose bleeds and they cauterized his nose. It doesn't hurt for a long and it's quick and within a couple of minutes the pain is gone. The pain that remains is from the vein as it is closed off and it will swell for a day or so but my brother didn't have any more nosebleeds and they were horrific! He even had them in his sleep. I'd take cauterization.

Urine is NOT sterile after it leaves the body. It will still contain the bacteria that it aquired while it was in your body. This is why & how doctors can diagnose urine, bladder & kidney infections in urine samples. It's also why you're advised to boil the urine in survival situations before you drink it. It's also part of the reason why some people's toilets will develop a horrible black film when not cleaned regularly! This myth drives me crazy! I don't know where it came from, but I wish it would stop! I have a medical background (from multiple sources) & I'm currently a health science student just for context.

4:12 hmmm I wonder if fountains like those were used as public pissing places that later a piss collector would come and swap out the piss for clean water. They used urine for alot of things back in the day including cleaning clothes so they needed a constant supply.

yet there are regular people in this day and age who are not homeless and refuse to bathe daily because they think it'll damage the oils in their skin or it wastes water. Don't believe me just Google it. I can always tell when I go to the gym in the evenings who did not bathe that day. They just smell way too funky for it to be from that morning--- men and women! I have walked by people's lockers and smell Funk from their clothes being in there. And again these are regular everyday people.

Oyster shells yes! Scrape that stuff out of your bum! My brother had his nose cauterized regularly because he had giant nose bleeds. Straw ferments and so anything that fell on it for mended and got stinky after a while. Mashed Mouse brains. My mother grew up with a chamber pot because the phone was so cold that nobody would go downstairs in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. It was kept under her bed and cleaned every day by my grandmother who scoured everything. My mother is 85.

Hospitals are again now using leeches four treatments of certain medical issues.
You think people of those times attempted rimjobs and oral sex, knowing that they never washed properly and have fecal berries protruding out from the men's hairy sphincters?

Urine is "NOT" sterile. The kidneys are the organs of the body which cleanse the body of poisons and toxins and flush these very non-sterile substances from the body as urine.
