RE: The question were the Salem witches a result of Ergot poisoning?
Hi Cecil and everyone else!
Far be it for me to contradict you Cecil, but I thought it might be of interest to you to draw your attention to the book ‘Secrets of the Dead’ by Hugh Miller (ISBN: 0752271660).
Although, like most mysteries in history, science is yet to concretely prove a theory, this book (well, chapter to be precise) does make a persuasive argument!
Although, I’m just a part-time browser of your wonderful site, I’m sure it’s been brought up before.
