11 - When People Bathed In Meat Soups

Throughout medieval times all the way until the 19th century, there are tales of people using food in all manner of creative ways. 
We know that ultimately what we put into our bodies will have either a positive or a negative effect on our wellbeing. It has the effect of working from the inside out in a sense. In this episode we look at the ways in which people thought food could have the same positive effect on our health, but this time, from the outside in.
