Actually, you room not the an initial person I have actually heard this from. My father-in-law has actually told us around this numerous times. I don"t think the ingredient he is talking around eating is the specific same stuff us buy in the stores today, yet it can be. You understand a many the older folks from that day wherein illiterate, so they might not have been able to read the warnings ~ above the labels (if there were any). It is by the pure elegant of God that any type of of the bad bast
rds survived...LOLHe additionally told me the wrapping your feet in rags wet in kerosene would cure colds too. Supposedly someone forgot come tell him the kerosene is combustible. Mine cousin called me that his mom used to rub that vick"s vapor rub on his feet and also put socks ~ above him prior to bed as soon as he to be sick. Probably there is something to several of these old cures. I surely am no going to eat vick"s vapor rub or wrap mine feet in kerosene, however I would likely be open to trying several of the other one I have actually heard about...

Yuck. The made me desire to throw up just reading that. Was the mom dumb or to be she trying to poison her kids. Ns think the entirety external usage comes with common sense on that project. I feel sorry because that the kids.

. When asked why’d the doing it. He simply replied the feels well when he eats it.

My mommy ate the stuff and also swore by it because that years. Finally persuaded her to begin taking multi-vitamins and also the urge for her to eat it went away. I have heard of human being eating dirt if your body is deficient in some mineral...is there something in Vicks that might fill a body"s require for some type of mineral.
I"ve heard the people applying it to your feet at night, It"s ment to be really benifical, yet eating it....as other human being said YUCK.
It reminds me the the movie “My big Fat Greek Wedding” where the Greek father believes everything can it is in cured through spraying Windex (glass cleaner) top top it. Hahahaha.
