Research Facts
Lydia E. Pinkham was a popular patent medicine producer famous for her Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound and other remedies; products were marketed as treatments for a wide variety of women’s health issues; Lydia E. Pinkham developed a relationship of trust with many female consumers who felt uncomfortable with male medical professionals; she marketed her products with images of her face and slogans like “Only a woman can understand a woman’s ills”; an all female Department of Advise was formed to respond to the many letters she received, and she also produced many pamphlets and manuals for women’s health and well being; the health benefits of her products were never proven and her Vegetable Compound contained high concentrations of alcohol; increased regulations in drug advertising forced the Lydia E. Pinkham Medicine Company to remove many of the medical claims for its products.

Research Facts
John Snow (15 March 1813 – 16 June 1858) was an English physician and a leader in the adoption of anaesthesia and medical hygiene. He is considered one of the fathers of modern epidemiology, in part because of his work in tracing the source of a cholera outbreak in Soho, London, in 1854. His findings inspired fundamental changes in the water and waste systems of London, which led to similar changes in other cities, and a significant improvement in general public health around the world.
