How the Mid-Victorians Worked, Ate and Died
"public records reveal that they lived as long – or longer – than we do in the 21st century."
"Our recent research indicates that the mid-Victorians’ good health was entirely due to their superior diet. "
"Arguably the most critical agricultural development was a more complex system of crop rotation" I see much of this is lost today, even when I was a child we had very effective crop rotation around on the farm, that gave great yields and happier plants. And their cars ( = horses) did not pollute the air, just some horse shit, that could be picked up and given to nice vegetables! Also the Victorian dress code was much better than today, even for horses! Not to forget only organic music.
Also Democritus got more than 100 years old 2500 BC. He sticked to the atomist diet!
