Today's radium WTF

Revigator (ca. 1924-1928)

Intended to add radioactivity to drinking water.

Advertised by the company as "an original radium ore patented water crock," it sold in the hundreds of thousands between 1922 and the mid-1930s.

As a company brochure stated, "Results overcome doubts." "The millions of tiny rays that are continuously given off by this ore penetrate the water and form this great HEALTH ELEMENT--RADIO-ACTIVITY. All the next day the family is provided with two gallons of real, healthful radioactive water . . . nature's way to health."
