You may be surprised to learn that much of modern technology has roots that go far back into history.
For example, in the Middle Ages, workers in a popular food shop were allowed to eat anything in the store.
But there were a couple of conditions. Workers were required to eat the food only during their lunch break. And one expensive item was off-limits: thinly sliced smoked salmon.
So, you see, that was the origin of anti-lox breaks.
