Fire was made on sand, and pots with food propped up pieces of lime. The combination of high temperature, sand, lime and ashes allowed to find in the morning in the cooled-down campfire pieces something smooth and firm.

in the middle of the 19th century in France drank milk of unhealthy cows and hurt a consumption. And to recover from a consumption - drank, certainly, milk. So unfortunate French drank and were ill, were ill and drank... So far the microbiologist Louis Pasteur did not decide to break off this vicious circle. To kill in milk a tubercular stick, the product is decided to be heated to temperature of 60 - 70 degrees Celsius of 30 minutes.

Actually it is not about accustoming to drinking of younger generation, and about the prevention of teenage alcoholism. Paradox! However, scientists demand to give to children beer strictly under control of adults and exclusively at dinner. A half-glass of intoxicated drink at a family table allegedly will create the correct relation to alcohol, and from attracting “forbidden fruit“ alcohol will turn into an opposite duty.
