The Black Death which killed around 200 million people across Europe — an estimated 60 per cent of the population — arrived via Russia, a study suggests.

Researchers reconstructed the genomes of the bacteria that caused the Black Death by analysing the teeth of its victims from across Europe.

Their findings suggest that the disease had a single point of origin into Europe, via the east Russian town of Laishevo.

    Basically, there is bacteria living in your mouth that produces a plaque(A plaque is a sticky substance that coats the surface of the teeth). Sugar is loved by these bacteria’s and these bacteria’s feast on everything sweet which comes across them. I would suggest people to use dental products at home, I had a lot of cavity in my teethes and I got my oral health products from aos international, they are most reliable suppliers and they have many dental products likes silkcare, cidex plus 28 day solution , cidex plus
    and more.
