Cause Of The Black Death
Plague: Yersinia pestis is the micro-organism that jumps from rats to humans and causes this deadly infection. The social causes had to do with crowding, and I'm told also to cats going out of fashion -- they're our friends as they kill off the rats that carry plague. Genetic archeology has identified the Yersinia subtypes causing each of the great plagues. ...Read more
Oxidation: If you cut your finger cooking at first bleeding would be bright red. As the iron in blood oxidizes it becomes dark red then forms a brown scab as it oxidizes further.

Could there ever have been a death caused by an allergic individual sitting next to someone eating nuts or some other?

Know your partner. ...Read more
