We're such wimps nowadays.

The above graphic is another scan from one of my old magazines, circa 1968.

"Are you miserable with pain and aches of leg ulcers, swelling, itch, rash due to deep venous congestion or leg swelling of the bulged veins or injuries?"

Nowadays, if anyone is "...miserable with pain and aches of leg ulcers, swelling...venous congestion...bulged veins or injuries," they'd better be in ER.

But back in 1968, you grit your teeth and sent away for a "FREE BOOK" to learn more about the subject.

"Kids! Shut the screen door - you're letting the bugs in! You know what happens when flies land on your father's leg ulcers!"
