Research Facts
A radium-infused concrete disk would have sat in the crock which would make the water radioactive.
Radium was discovered in 1898 by Marie Curie and her husband Pierre. Radium was advertised as having curative powers, and as such, many things were infused with it, including water. Later, however, radium was shown to cause anemia, cancers, and genetic mutations, and the products were discontinued, and the use of radium for health purposes stopped in the 1950s when safer sources of radiation replaced it.
Radium water was very popular in the 1920s, as it was believed that small doses of radiation be good for one's health. However, cancer cases prompted the removal of radium water from shelves.
