We really have come a long way...

Peter Gordon has an article looking at how medical care have improved in the last 100 years, looking at the "drug department" items in a 100 year old Sears catalog.

Interestingly, one of the items is Vin Vitae, which is made of coca leaves and wine (next to last paragraph).

Cocaine and booze. Right now it's a party, but 100 years ago it was medical care. It's amazing how much we have progressed.
