Apr 13, 2023

Hey Readers! Who has pellagra?? Would you know if you did? Don’t worry you won’t get it. But you will learn on this episode what pellagra was, why it killed 100,000 Americans, and took many dedicated hours to figure out the cure. Thank you for always listening and wondering alongside our stories. Why is it that Beth talks abut the taint so much?
