Answers 

1. All except for Band-Aids. Technically, that product was invented
for ease of use. When the newlywed wife of a salesman kept cutting and burning herself during her daily cooking chores, her husband invented  a disposable bandage that could be easily applied to her fingers as she prepared meals.
* Descriptions of her constant injuries are hair-raising.
It appears that barring her from the kitchen might have been the best safety measure.

Lesson: If you first glanced at the list, a-e, and decided the answer was obvious, that may indicate a tendency to make make snap decisions without gathering facts.
