  Avoiding Asphyxiation by Aroid
From: Theodore Held <oppenhauser2001 at gmail.com> on 2010.02.24 at 11:59:12(20661)
The attached picture shows a person sleeping in a manner recommended by
Bernarr Macfadden in his famous “Encyclopedia of Physical Culture”, Vol
ume 1
(of five), 1924 (Chapter II, “How to Keep Healthy”). The person’s bed
is
situated in a window, opening onto a balcony, with the head immersed in
fresh air and the body sheltered somewhat from the cold and elements by
remaining indoors.

While Macfadden was thinking here of guarding against asphyxiation by one
’s
own exhalations, laden as they are with CO2, this set up could just as well
serve the typical Aroid Society member worried about the dangers of sleepin
g
in the same darkened room as an Anthurium or even (for daring risk-takers)
a
large Philodendron.

In his prime, mainly from about 1920 to 1935, Macfadden was widely followed
in the U.S. and elsewhere and became quite wealthy by publishing fare such
as this.

Best regards and wishes of good health to all,

Ted Held
