I'm not laughing at you @lostmaniac
but the stuff I got into when I was a kid and my only problems were (and sometimes are) 'hay fever' (pollen allergy)
Let's see, we'd get thirsty and drink from the cow or horse trough, whichever was closest; grandpa gave us fresh milk - like straight from the cow and warm milk; we'd pull carrots from the garden and wipe the dirt off them and eat them along with raw corn, radishes, peas, beans and whatever else was reasonably ripe that we could get away with. (( er, raw corn is a great laxative - lesson learned! )) and none of us kids (my cousins and I) ever got sick beyond the occasional cold that'd make the rounds at school. We'd go wandering in the woods eating blue berries and blackberries right off the bush; chew on a spearmint leaf ...
If I were growing up today with today's parents, they'd be having conniptions - but shoot for a farm boy in the middle part of the last century, that was just a normal way of life. and for some reason as a group, we're still pretty healthy.
