At all times, women have resorted to various tricks to maintain their beauty. Some of them were completely harmless, while others were a real threat to life.
We want to talk about one such method that was very popular in the Victorian era.
At this time, slenderness and a wasp waist, which were emphasized with tight corsets, were again in fashion.
And women, for the sake of achieving ideal forms, began to drink pills with tapeworm eggs.
It seemed like the perfect solution. The women did not limit themselves in anything, but at the same time they lost weight, since the parasite ate most of the hostess's food.
Well, health problems and terrible pains were considered victims for the sake of beauty. They say you want to be beautiful - pay!
Today, this method seems simply barbaric, but it is rumored that some famous women still resort to such extremes.
Whatever it was, but we are sure that the health of the body is too high a price for beauty.
