Rhode Island’s Victory Medical Spa talks about the HISTORY OF BOTOX.
From Toxin To Multi- Billion Dollar Fountain of Youth Industry
BOTOX was first discovered in the 1820’s when Dr. Justinus Kerner researched what was the cause of death for some Germans who had consumed sausage. Turns out it was food–borne botulinum toxin.
Then during the 1940’s, the United States attempted to use this poison to take out its enemies. Botulism capsules were made and given to Chinese prostitutes to slip into the food and drink of high ranking Japanese officers during WWII.
