      My father gave it to all 9 of us anytime we had a fever. It worked fast And the benefits probably overweighted possible side effects. My siblings and me had several Masters degrees and 2 PhD’s so it didn’t cause any brain damage.
      Aspirin is dangerous for children and we didn’t have tylenol or ibuprofen back then. We usually only had 1 town doctor so home remedies were essential to families.
