Hundreds of years ago, well, one would not eat half of the stuff that we get so conveniently off the supermarket shelf, that's for sure.
Maybe you started your day with a healthy thick porridge (yuck), followed by a good slice of get-your-teeth-into-that wholemeal bread. Then, after you had done the first half of the day's chores, you would be craving a juicy full fat piece of chicken (with skin) and some vegetables. All of that probably washed down with some water.
So, a hundred years ago -- the maternal and infant death rate aside -- a lot of things were a little more plain and people, wealthy or not, had a little less choice than today's average consumer.
Just think about it: nail varnish? I have a feeling that wasn't part of life then back either, but perhaps the very rich poisoned themselves slowly with some beautiful lead based make up.
And perhaps most of them did not even know when they did suffer a miscarriage. After all, ignorance is bliss.
