Want to recreate the illusion of eight hours of undisturbed slumber after a gin-fuelled night? The 19th-century trend of Arsenic eating is your answer. Turns out it was consumed to produce “a blooming complexion, a brilliant eye, and an appearance of embonpoint” (aka busty). Even though it could lead to arsenic poisoning and symptoms such as diarrhoea, vomiting, bloody pee, cramping muscles, hair loss, stomach pain, and convulsions. Did we mention, that if you didn’t die from consuming it, then you would surely die if you stopped?
