    I remember they'd treat the classrooms of my elementary school with DDT. My wife remembers all the kids riding their bikes through clouds of the stuff when the mosquito abatement truck drove through the neighborhood. Never hurt us any, any, any, any, any...

    Living in the tropics those trucks were everywhere, all the time, and I was one of the kids riding through the mist without a care in the world...

    As long as the fibers are contained it retains its techno benifits without the techno consequences.

    Another one with the kids.  Read the text: Safe for a boy to handle and has none of the disadvantages of the dangerous toy pistol.  😎

    That first ad in the OP is a hoax, which makes me wonder about others.  The woman in that first ad is Kim Novak.

    When I was a small boy. My grandfather had a host of instigating phrases he might unload at opportune or inopportune times. One was back when men were men and women were proud of it.......

    Such phrases are carefully restrained in my memory and that one only sees the light of day for historical reference here...............

    While we're on the subject of mercury, where do you think the phrase "mad as a hatter" came from?

    I've seen a lot of the old cigarette ads that claimed tobacco to provide health benefits.

    You haven't heard of the benefits?

    Now I know why I like Coca Cola. 😁

    And then there's this... For those pesky toothaches.
    Or anytime you need a little "pick me up"

    And others...

    I'd say where do I get those but with a Department Store named Shempley's I have to be automatically suspicious.


    But that extra large snack sack could come in handy. 👍

    Because there was nothing to be careful of. There was no real evidence that DDT was harmful, the inventor ate a teaspoon of it EVERY day and lived to a ripe old age. Rachel Carson was a sham and her book was garbage. She killed as many people in third world countries as any banana republic dictator.
