Scientists have accused ancient Romans of spread of tuberculosis


According to scientists, the disease has begun to be transferred and extend actively at the time of Ancient Rome. The group of scientists of the University of Wisconsin-Madison has said that responsible for so wide circulation of tuberculosis in the world are ancient Romans. Writes Science Alert about it. They have established that the disease has begun to extend and be transferred widely on the planet thanks to public barracks and baths at the time of formation of Ancient Rome. Experts have emphasized that the era of the Roman dominion is a key milestone in the course of spread of tuberculosis. At the same time the main carriers of this disease were the Roman soldiers and merchants who expanded power borders in the territory of Asia and Africa where exchanged microbes with locals. However one of the most ancient strains of tuberculosis are bacteria which have appeared in the northeast of China about 6600 years ago. Due to the lack of treatment of a bacterium evolved and today every fourth person on the planet is struck with this illness. Earlier it was reported that Ukraine is in the second place on incidence of tuberculosis in Europe. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
