When it seems like today's advertising goes pretty far, it turns out that the ads from years ago were incredibly obscene. Some of the old advertisements were sexist, racist and provided incredibly inaccurate medical information. You should be relieved that you live in an age in which you don't have to see such wrong ads.
Here are 17 vintage ads that should be outlawed and you won't believe were real. You've been warned:
2. If your dentist says so, it must be true.

5. It's shocking that this was real.
6. Cigarettes that "treat" asthma.
7. It's unbelievable that this ad existed.
8. Something is wrong about this one.
9. Be very glad that vile ads like this one don't exist today.
