Now they can't blame Native Americans for syphilis anymore.

It probably originated in Wuhan. :ermm:

@TheOtherTink, And they used mercury to treat Syphilis. Mercury itself is harmful. Radium is also used as a medicine before. There were people who were affected by radium and were classified with Syphilis. (Graphical content)

@ Dan: Yes, these were awful examples of the effects of quack medicine.

At 1:37 of the first clip, you could even get radium chocolates, biscuits and cocoa! :O

And then of course you could use radium toothpaste to make sure you didn't get any cavities in your teeth.
