      Not sure if this is relevant. Anyway, it’s different.

      A couple of different ‘smoking’ (tobacco) advertisements..
      The first is from circa 1950? The other is early 1900s. Each one is quite a curiosity.

      The first is an ad for Camel Lights or some low tar menthol light. The setting is a Doctor’s office with a very authoritative ‘doctorly’ father-figure. The ad explicitly boasts something like,
      “Today, More Doctors Prefer Camel Lights over any other leading Cigarette. Sure, Doctors know it’s lowest in tar, but it’s also the smooth, mild flavor… Doctors enjoy!”

      The second is a photograph from the early 1900s (1920s?), taken at the finish line of the Tour de France I believe.
      A bunch of the cyclists are photographed riding side by side, exhausted and smoking cigarettes together during cool-down.

      This is a misleading article. The gene that causes Double Muscling is a naturally occurring mutation that was taken advantage of by breeders, no different that dog breeders taking normal dogs and breeding pugs and bulldogs. Look up what dog breeds looked like 100 years ago. And even just looking at one trait, the highly desirable double-curl tail in a pug, it is actually a genetic defect, in more serious forms it leads to paralysis.

      This article makes it look like these cattle were genetically altered in a lab. They were not. Some farmer found that some of his animals had way more meat on them than the others and bred them, resulting in the faulty gene being passed on, and then exaggerated by decades of selective breeding to “improve” the breed.

      It is no different than munchkin cats with their tiny legs, or Chihuahuas so tiny they can fit in a teacup. Selective breeding, NOT Genetic modification. Actually do your research for once.
