Black Plague Pandemic New Discovery
Today we’re going to talk about the Black Plague pandemic. This pandemic roughly occurred around 1348. There were between 70-200 million people that died during that pandemic.
A discovery was made by digging up and examining the skeletons from an unmarked grave in northern London. They found that a good number of these skeletons had:
• Rickets (rickets is a severe vitamin D deficiency)
• Bad teeth (bad teeth can be due to a vitamin D deficiency)
• Injuries (potentially from a war)
So there was a combination of malnutrition and a war that could create a perfect storm for a weakened immune system.
A vitamin D deficiency can create:
• Susceptibility to infection
• A low number of white blood cells
• Weak white blood cells
• Less control of inflammation
There was also a pandemic that occurred in 1918 called the Spanish Flu, in which about 50-100 million people died. Both of these pandemics peaked in the winter, which is also the time of year when people typically get the least amount of vitamin D.
There was also a war going on at the time or near the time of both of these pandemics. This could have caused a drop in nutritional levels because people started eating differently. There weren’t a lot of fresh, nutrient-dense foods available, especially for soldiers.
With COVID-19, the people who are dying are older, and people with a weakened immune system. Supporting a healthy immune system is crucial.
