Reference Comments
"Dr. Chase's Recipes or Information for Everybody" (1862 edition), by A. W. Chase M.D.
Why the appeal? A study of almanacs advertising Dr. Chase's patent medicines, 1904–1959. Denise Maines.
Research Facts
Medication for liver and kidney -- a regulator of the liver, kidneys and bowels.
Patent medicines were advertised, and presumably consumed, with much vigour in the late-19th and early-20th centuries.
In 1904, the original product line included Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, Liver Cure, Backache Plasters, Ointment, Catarrh Cure, Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine and Kidney-Liver Pills. Somewhere between 1924 and 1927, Dr. Chase's Liniment was added to this list, and Mouthwash was sold between 1927 and 1938. Paradol, a painkiller, was introduced in the 1950s and D.M.H Cough Syrups, Cold Tablets and Enerjets emerged in 1959. Though Backache Plasters were not advertised in the 1930s, they were included in the 1950s, so that the list of medicines sold by Dr. Chase's Medicine Company in 1959 contains all of the original product line with only minor modifications to a few of these products, as well as the new arrivals.

H2O system pure 'quackery'. New Zeland Herald
What's Behind Grander Water? WaterBogus
Johann Grander - The Inventor. Grander
Research Facts
Johann Grander is the discoverer of the water revitalisation. He was neither a scholar nor a scientist, but rather a simple, modest man, who grew up in the Tyrolean mountains, started a family and worked very hard. At the age of 49 he gave up his job to follow his calling and to dedicate himself to his experiments.
The Grander Living Water system, says it energises H2O, making it permanently resonate with the cosmos.
Drinking water treated by the system, it says, will improve your circulation and blood pressure, detoxify your body and reduce allergies.
None of the scientific studies done on the Grander Living Water have revealed any evidence to support their claims.
