Oct 27th, 2016: Tin Cans

Nicolas Appert, inventor of the canning process, preserving food by sealing it in sterilized containers.
He published the results of 14 years of research in 1810 and received 12,000 franc award from the French government.
Napoleon, who famously understood that an army travels on its stomach, had offered the award.



That same year, Appert’s friend and agent, Peter Durand, took the invention to the other side.
He switched the medium from glass to metal and presented it to Napoleon’s enemies, the British–
scoring a patent (No. 3372) from King George for the preservation of food in metal (wrought iron) containers– the tin can.

Looks yucky but I guess it beats eating the dead.

Eating the (recently) dead may have been a healthier option sometimes.
The early tins were soldered shut with lead.

Lead poisoning is one of the possible explanations as to why all the men on the Franklin expedition to find the North West passage were found dead with a plentiful supply of food.

They probably ate the women and the protein killed them.

Breach the walls, storm the keep, eat the women, save the sheep.

They would have had to have eaten not only an enormous amount of lead, but also absorbed it. Eating lead is not a very effective way to accumulate it in your blood. Inhaling dust and vapors is ideal.

ETA: Just read about the expedition. It seems that the lead contributed to their deaths by

Coupling that information with evidence the British Admiralty already had - by 1852 the Admiralty knew that Goldner’s Patent Meats were contaminated - it was logical to conclude what had happened. The crew’s food supply, stored in lead-soldered (since-rusted) tin cans, was the source of the poison.


Scientists believe the men were slowly driven insane as a direct result.

Bunch of men, marooned in ice, no women or pron. You bet they went insane

But yes, there are a number of theories. And food standards as well as tinning were in their infancy.
Of course there are wackier ones. But most of the more scientifically viable do revolve around what they were eating, one way or another.
Pleased to have more knowledge now though, thank you.

BTW, am chock-full of protein if anyone needs to keep their levels up by...
No, sorry. That's too rude.

No. That is not rude. Some men do it, because she did him. I do it, cause I love to eat pu$$y. See how many shots of protein I can consume. I can't seem to get past 13, but I am persistent . True brunettes or true blondes have maybe 26 hairs. I can deal with that. All others have to get out the clippers.
