Consumption By: The Awesome Brennan Pacl
The remedies for Consumption in real life are… • Milk diet • Custard apple • Indian gooseberry • Pineapple • Banana • Orange • Mint • Fresh air, sunshine, and no strain.
The remedies for consumption in the book… • Putting the first one that died to rest • Smoking cow dung • Some kind of milk I think
