    Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe there WERE patent medicines/snake oil that really contained radium (!) that greatly accelerated the user’s expire date!

    So, it wasn’t just a catchy advertising word, it was an insane ingredient!

    I like the “Radium Silent Matches” too. Were matches notorious back then for deafening people or something?
