The story of the hamburger

The hamburger is one of the most popular foods in the world, but where did it come from? Nobody really knows.

One theory is that about 800 years ago Mongolian soldiers, who didn't have or cookers, put meat under their saddles while they rode their horses to make it soft. In the evening they ate the meat without cooking it.

Another story is that immigrants to America from the city of Hamburg in Germany brought their ‘Hamburg steak’ with them - a type of fried meat in .

Or perhaps Otta Kuasw from Hamburg made the first hamburger. Otto meat with eggs, then fried it and put it between bread and sold it to young, hard-working and sailors for their lunch. When the sailors went back to America they asked their families to make the same thing and so the hamburger was born.

Pain killers

In most countries of the world, there is one medicine that nearly everyone takes. It is called aspirin. People take aspirin when they have an ache or a pain, and sometimes when they have a fever. Doctors believe it can also help people who have heart disease and some other diseases, too. Some people, however, cannot take aspirin because it hurts their stomachs. Aspirin must never be given to children under 12 years old.

Before aspirin was invented some people made a drink with the bark of the white willow tree. This drink made their pain and fever go away. People had been drinking white willow bark for thousands of years, but no one knew why it helped.

Then, in the 1830s, scientists in England studied all the things that were in the bark of the white willow. They found out what thing in the plant stopped the pain. They called this pain stopping thing "salicin". Soon people were making medicine with the salicin and selling it.

Later scientists found out how to make salicin without using any plants at all. They called this new thing "acetylsalicylic acid", and this is what aspirin is made from. Aspirin was first sold in 1899 by the Bayer company of Germany.
