We don’t need to go very far back in time to see what was once acceptable in medicine is now frowned upon by even our mainstream society. In fact, many argue that many past tendencies were deranged insanities of that time. But do things really change through successive generations?
Take for example the 1949 TV commercial from Camel cigarettes.
Part of the commercial states in no uncertain terms that “time out for many men of medicine usually means just long enough to enjoy a cigarette…in a repeated national survery, doctors in all branches of medicine, doctors in all parts of the country were asked, What cigarette do you smoke Doctor? Once again, the brand named most was camel.”
Many of us will look as such commercials claiming deranged thinking and even insanity to suggest that Doctors were recommending cigarettes to their patients.
