Strange, the Daily Mail is usually so accurate.

Zeolite is actually a critical part of the F-35 cockpit air system. It actually uses zeolite to filter out the nitrogen from the outside air.leaving almost pure oxygen for the cabin. So no more oxygen tanks or LOX dewars required.

Well, what works is what works. If it worked 1000 years ago or 10,000, it still works. Most of us still use ceramic plates and woven cotton clothes...

Clean water just kept their immune systems from developing. That's why Europeans who drank sewage water in filthy cities wiped them out.

When I was little, we found a man. He looked like - like, butchered. The old women in the village crossed themselves, and whispered crazy things, strange things. "El diablo cazador de hombres". Only in the hottest years this happens. And this year, it grows hot. We begin finding our men. We found them sometimes without their skin... and sometimes much, much worst.  "El que hace trofeos de los hombres" means "the demon who makes trophies of man"

Yellow Fever was the cover story cooked up the government to suppress the knowledge of Other World Life Forms (OWLF).

I'm always fascinated by the ways ancient civilizations made advances in some areas.  Incas were doing some pretty intense medical procedures.
