This one goes back to 'way back when.' In herbal remedies, people would often be directed to add a dollop of chicken, duck, or goose turds. Then, they'd be advised that the ground up poultice could last up to a year. It was like having Tylenol in your medicine cabinet, Tylenol made out of bird droppings. This miracle ingredient could help in mixtures that treated burns, dressed wounds, and solved discomfort from overeating. It's not really a huge surprise then that so many of our ancestors died of easily avoidable diseases. I mean, they were eating, slathered in, and bandaged up with poop.
