Not too long ago most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May and still smelt pretty good. However, they might be starting to pong a bit so brides carried a bouquet of flowers to disguise the smell.

People with money had plates made of pewter, which had lead in them. Food with a high acid content caused some of the lead to leach into the food, causing severe poisoning. This happened most often with tomatoes, so for centuries tomatoes were considered poisonous!
