Not really Jacky54. As far as medical science is concerned tremendous improvement with computers and internet. Old days are better because they ate a lot less chemicals in their foods.

I wonder where the effluent went from all those folks living next to and/or on the river in boats?

I remember the "honey wagons" that hauled the sewage from the private  "septic tanks" in Bangkok when there was basically no public sewage system in many parts of Bangkok.

They used to haul the sewage out to the outskirts of Bangkok and spread it as "fertilizer" on the fields.

The "honey wagons" traveled out to the outskirts of Bangkok early in the morning before most of the other  traffic was moving.

the "honey wagons" were still being used in 1977 or so when I first came to Bangkok.
