Lilek's scan of a 1920s ad promotes JAD Salts as a weight loss method. (I love the commentary)
How did they work? I was able to find a recipe, but I'm unsure as to whether they'd induce diarrhea or vomiting or (most likely) both:
Jad Salts. Contains sodium phosphate, sodium and potassium bicarbonates, citric and tartaric acids with a small amount of hexamethylene tetramine. (Wiley's 1001 Tests).I'd like to know more about the weight loss methods of the 1920s. Was purging socially acceptable?
