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.

Research Facts
In the Ingram and Bell Limited catalogue for 1964, Aromatic Spirit of Ammonia is listed as "a restorative in cases of fainting and collapse, which stimulates respiration, accelerates the heart and raises the blood pressure."
In the British Pharmacopoeia for 1914, the ingredients listed for Aromatic Spirit of Ammonia are: Ammonium Carbonate, Strong Solution of Ammonia, Oil of Nutmeg, Oil of Lemon, Alcohol (90 per cent.), and Distilled Water.
Aromatic ammonia is used to prevent and treat fainting and aid in overcoming the effects of anesthesia by encouraging the body to breathe; ammonia can be taken orally in solution with water or placed on a fabric rag and inhaled; large doses or prolonged exposure to ammonia is harmful.
Ingram & Bell Limited was a medical supply company first established in Toronto in 1905; the company became a Canadian leader in the distribution of medical products; their wide selection included equipment, surgical tools, and pharmaceuticals; as the company grew, they established branches in Montreal, Winnipeg, Calgary, and Vancouver; became Ingram & Bell Inc. and 49% owned by MDS in 1986; MDS acquired 100% in 1993; became Source Medical Corporation after merger with Allegiance Healthcare Canada Inc. in 1997; acquired by Cardinal Health Canada Inc. in 2005.

Research Facts
Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008.
This adaptor for a baby's bottle was invented by an American dentist from Texas who spoke in Montreal around 1938; he was concerned about the bottles of the time, which were just long tubes through which the baby sucked; he believed they were causing infants to have dental problems later in life; he designed this adaptor to recreate more closely a baby naturally breastfeeding, where the baby uses more jaw motions to drink milk; unfortunately his product did not take off as bottle companies began to change their design almost immediately afterward.
