The Black Death was a pandemic of plague that swept through Europe during the years of 1346-1353 (Benedictow). The plague is a disease that is caused by a bacteria called Yersinia pestis. This bacteria commonly infects rats and other rodents and is most often transmitted to humans by fleas that feed on the infected rats and then feed on humans (CDC). Rats are common, unwanted companions in large urban areas and more importantly, on ships. There are conflicting theories on where the plague that caused the Black Death pandemic originated from, but most agree on the location where the plague first started its journey to Europe.
Now for my lost cause it would have to be food safty the reason why it would have to be food safty because of the things they use in their meet.

In conclusion, the rats and new machinery just caused more problem for the soldiers during the war, making it even more
The vaginal tract is the most susceptible site when compared with the other mucosal sites such as oral and anal sites (16, 17, 34, 36). To obtain the robust and unbiased results, we will include up to six samples (3-4 samples are commonly used for this kind of study) of each group for RNA sequencing. To minimize the variables in the study, we plan to use the inbred mouse strain (NU/J-Foxn1nu/J). To minimize the variation in age, the siblings of the infected mice without infection will be used as negative controls. In Specific
The Bubonic Plague (Black Death) came to the eastern Mediterranean along the shipping routs. It reached Italy in spring of 1348. By the time the disease spread between 25% and 50% of Europes population had died (document 1, (Source: EyeWitnesstoHistory.com) the Bubonic Plague was spread because in this time there was not any place to put garbage and wast products like we have today, so they would just leave the trash/wast anywhere and everywhere and the result of this would bring rats and many other animals, and with these animals they had fleas and eventually the fleas would get to the people and the humans would get sick and spread it to everyone. Some symptoms of the Bubonic Plague were large swelling lumps which they called "buboes" sizing

Many people in Jamestown died of disease, there was no hygiene on the ships or the villages whatsoever.

In the 1920s, Griffith began an experiment that consisted of using two types of pneumonia causing bacteria, smooth and rough. The smooth bacteria that the experiment used had a capsule, while the rough lacked one. Griffith injected the types bacteria into the mice to determine the impact they had. When the mice were injected with live rough bacteria, they lived, and when the mice were injected with live smooth bacteria, they died. Griffith at this point had concluded that the capsule was the cause of death of these mice and he decided to conduct two more experiments.
The plague was taken in 2 different ways by the citizens of Messina. Some would lock themselves away in their homes to try and escape from the disease. Others used the mayhem and seemingly apocalyptic situation as an excuse to live it up while they could, drinking every night and having sex with as many people as they wanted while trying to avoid the sick. It wasn’t long before a paralyzing fear took hold of the city. Families stopped visiting each other with the likelihood of getting sick, doctors wouldn’t take house calls or treat victims of the plague, and priests would go to visit the sick and refused to administer this last rights.
It even ended trade between some countries, led to the suspension of wars, and many laborers were annihilated by the plague which cause the ruin of many landowners ("Black Death."). The plague came in waves, and revisited Europe multiple times during the Middle Ages ("Black Death."). Since medical sciences were advanced enough to defend against the plague, there was no way to save anyone that contracted the plague which helped advance the rising of fatalities of Europe’s population. Due to the constant restoration of the plague, it prompted researchers to try and help find out how to stop the plague and its deadly symptoms ("Bubonic plague. " World of Biology).
The U.S. used this type of welfare to end the lives of many Japanese civilians in order to potentially end the war. This all begun on March 9th, 1945 when the U.S. sent warplanes to Japan that dropped 2,000 tons of flammable bombs on Tokyo. The damage that these firebombs caused were so devastating that almost about 16 square miles in and around the Japanese capital was greatly consumed by the fire. The firebombs were the most effective in downtown Tokyo suburb of Shitamachi. Many survivors of the firebombs called this town the “paper city” due to how quickly it was set on fire when the bombs were released.
One night I was horrified to find two rats on my blanket tussling for the possession of a severed hand. However, what was worse than the trenches was the malevolent toxic gas the Fritz’s were using. We first encountered it while retreating and I had already made it safely to the other trench but my commander was the last to fall back as he was laying down cover fire for us and was caught in the gas cloud.
