"UNION CARBIDE SUPPORTS EPA ACTION ON REPELLENT LINKED TO BIRTH DEFECTS" by Journal of Commerce Staff

"Pest Control Products Act R.S.C., 1985, c. P-9", Justice Laws Website, Government of Canada: https://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/P-9/page-1.html
Research Facts
Ethylhexanediol was shown by Union Carbide to potentially produce birth defects in animals, including their lungs failing to inflate when they are born. Because of this discovery, products like 6-12 Insect Repellent were taken off the shelves in the 1990s and pregnant and child-bearing age women were urged not to use it.

TheRetroRescuers, Vintage Hankscraft Baby Food Warmer Dish ~Periwinkle Blue: https://www.etsy.com/sg-en/listing/594103122/vintage-hankscraft-baby-food-warmer-dish
Research Facts
This dish was used to feed toddlers. Warm water would be poured into the hollow portion and plugged with a matching lid, which in this case has been replaced by a cork. The water inside the dish would keep the food warm. The ridged base and the heavy weight of the bowl kept toddlers from throwing the bowl on the ground, etc.
Similar items were made by a company called Hankscraft.

Research Facts
A later edition of this book, from 1937-1942, in print while Harold J. Kirby was Ontario's Minister of Health, has an illustration of the famous Dionne quintuplets on the front cover.
Forbes Godfrey was Ontario's first Minister of Health, and he was a doctor before entering the realm of politics. Dr. Godfrey wanted the government to do more to combat tuberculosis, as the disease was devastating Ontario's citizens. As a result of his efforts, a system of government supported tuberculosis hospitals was created. Dr. Godfrey was also a strong believer in vaccination. He was responsible for organizing the ministry of health from its beginnings, and he helped protect miners from silicosis; started industrial health programs; created public health clinics in remote areas, and began free immunization programs for Ontario school children.

Research Facts
Basal body temperature thermometers are marketed and sold specifically for women trying to get pregnant. While charting your basal body temperature (BBT) is a good way to track ovulation, one of the biggest benefits to this method is the low expense.
To get an accurate reading, you must take your temperature when you first wake up in the morning, before you even sit up in bed. And you'll need to use a basal thermometer, which is sensitive enough to measure minute changes in body temperature. Try to wake up and take a reading at about the same time each morning.

Research Facts
Carter's Little Liver Pills were developed in 1868 by Samuel J. Carter from Erie, Pennsylvania.
In 1959, the United States Federal Trade Commission forced Carter's Little Liver Pills to undergo a name change after it was found around 1943 that the pills had nothing to do with the liver. After this, they became simply "Carter's Little Pills", and spawned a saying popular in the American South "He has more ___ than Carter has little pills" (the saying previously went "more than Carter has little liver pills").
Carter's Little Liver Pills were often advertised as a cure-all; a remedy for distress from dyspepsia, indigestion, and too hearty eating, and a remedy for dizziness, nausea, drowsiness, bad taste in the mouth, coated tongue, pain in the side; they regulate the bowels and prevent constipation and piles.
In 1911, the ingredients of Carter's Little Liver Pills were listed in the British Medical Journal as sugar, grain, aloes (Barbados), podophyllin, powdered licorice root, wheat starch.
Today, Carter's Little Pills still exist, and the ingredients are bisacodyl USP 5 mg, calcium phosphate, calcium sulfate, carnauba wax, cellulose, gelatin, kaolin, magnesium stearate, methacrylic acid copolymer, polyethylene glycol pregelatinized starch, silicon dioxide, sucrose, talc, titanium dioxide, and white wax.
