These X-ray pills will map the inside of your body

“I want a doctor to take your picture, so I can look at you from inside as well…”

Colon cancer is a societal scourge, killing roughly 700,000 people each year. Most cases start as small, benign clumps of cells; if caught early, it can potentially be life-saving which is why screening are recommended for anyone over the age of 50. The problem with regular screenings,, though, is that they aren’t exactly a pleasant experience—as you might imagine for a cancer that occurs in that part of the body.

Screenings involve either having a colonoscopy (during which physician sticks a thin, flexible tube up your arse to inspect your innards) or collecting your poop multiple times to have it analyzed for trace amounts of blood.

Boys who wanted to fit in that season were advised to sport corduroy or dress slacks with a work, polo or plaid shirt. “Cossack coats,” a nickname for short, heavy-zippered jackets, were preferred on cold autumn days. Young boys, LIFE reported, eschewed any style that made it look as though their mothers had dressed them. According to a leading style expert of the time, mothers fell into one of two categories: “those who try to keep their sons little boys, and those who try to anticipate the time when their sons will look like their fathers.”

In contrast, the magazine continued, young girls’ “secret sartorial aspiration is to dress exactly like…
