Did mycotoxins play a role in bubonic plague epidemics?

Did mycotoxins play a role in bubonic plague epidemics?

Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 29(2): 244-256

The epidemiology of plagueepidemics and the immunosuppressive action of mycotoxins are discussed. It is concluded that increased levels of T-2 toxin and other related mycotoxins in grain may have contributed to the occurrence of the bubonic plague. Thus, differences in mortality in adjacent areas may be explained by differences in rainfall, diet and storage practices.
