"And I'm Holly Fry. This episode is the last episode I am writing for the year 2020. Spent a year pray. Yeah, hurry also. I've just I've had minimal contact with anybody besides my spouse it almost nine months and then for some reason, my brain keeps being like scurvy. And that's what we're gonna talk about. Today is scurvy because just for some weird reason, my brain keeps coming back around to it in these times of winter and pandemic, so scurvy in case you don't know And you probably do is a deficiency in vitamin C or acerbic acid, and its story goes way way back in history. All the way to our evolutionary ancestors living more than 60 million years ago, most mammals can generate their own acerbic acid, and that included those primate ancestors. But somewhere along the way, a random genetic mutation broke the ability to produce an enzyme known his Elga Luna lacked own oxidize or goo low, which is a necessary part of making acerbic acid. Was her big ass. It is also necessary. The body uses it to synthesize the protein, collagen and collagen is a crucially important part of our connective tissue. We needed to do really important things like hold our skin and blood vessels together. So if the body cannot replace worn out college in it causes serious problems. The first symptoms of scurvy involved fatigue, lethargy and aching joints. People start to bruise easily. Wounds won't heal and old wounds reopen without treatment with vitamin C. Scurvy is eventually fatal, often because of acute internal bleeding around the brain or heart. But when our ancestors stopped being able to produce Gullo, this really did not matter. They were living in tropical areas and their diets included lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, so they were getting plenty of vitamin C through their food. If this had not been true, this genetic mutation that shut off the ability to synthesize Gula would have wiped them out. But since their diets were rich with vitamin C, they continued to thrive. As people started living farther from tropical areas, they started eating more foods that did not necessarily contain as much vitamin C. But most of the time this was still not a big problem. Most dietary recommendations call for significantly more vitamin C, but it doesn't actually take that much just to prevent scurvy on Lee about 10, MG a day or all you need And although vitamin C is mostly associated with fruits and vegetables, it has found another foods as well. Most meat contains a little if it hasn't been cooked too long and liver and kidney meat in particular, contained quite a bit of it. So, as one example the practice of eating raw organ meat in far northern indigenous communities provides protection from scurvy, even when plant based foods are unavailable or out of season. So as communities established themselves around the world, people had to have some kind of vitamin C and their diets. Otherwise that community just could not survive. But any time that access to food was cut off in some way, say because of a war or a famine, people could start to develop scurvy and this was also true for people with diseases and conditions that kept them from eating or kept them from absorbing the nutrients in their food. In the words scurvy comes from older terms that mean lazy scabbed or skirt which used to be used to describe dandruff. People started using it to describe this disease in about the 16th century, but written descriptions of scurvy that predate that word are much older. The earliest likely description of scurvy is found in the Egyptian document, known as the Evers Papyrus, which dates back to about 1500 B. C. E. Past podcast subject, she shrewd a described a condition involving bleeding gums and loosening teeth around 800. BC Roughly 400 years later, Greek physician Hippocrates described what was probably scurvy. And while he did not go into detail about the cure, he knew for it. He did note that it wasn't effective and that patients usually died. So today, Scurvy is associated with long sea voyages and has humanity took to the sea. People worked out some ways to prevent it, although really, without necessarily knowing. That was what they were doing. Many of the earliest seafarers stuck close to the coasts or the island hopped, and that gave them plenty of opportunities to stock up on fresh food. His voyages got longer. Many also had foods on board that were rich in vitamin C. It's possible that Polynesian way finders introduced sweet potatoes to Central and South America, they would have brought them with them over thousands of miles of ocean. And sweet potatoes contain vitamin C. Scandinavian stock their ships with cloud buries, which have about four times as much vitamin C as oranges. Do. Unpasteurized milk also contains vitamin C, so seafarers who had dairy animals on board could get it that way. While scurvy was common enough to be documented in ancient medical literature. One of the first specifically documented outbreaks happened in the 13th century. During the eighth Crusade, the King Louis the ninth lay siege to Tunis. Although there were plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables available in the area, the king and his fighting force were mostly eating fish, and many were also undertaking religious fasts. The king and about 1/6 of his men died of disease during the siege. For a long time. Their deaths were attributed to plague. But more recent research has found evidence of scurvy in the King's job own. Not long after this scurvy started to become a serious problem on European ships during long civil ages. And most of the literature that's related to his scurvy in history today is focused primarily on Europe and its colonies, mostly during the age of exploration, which was from about the 15 through the 17th centuries. But of course Europeans were not the only people taking to the sea. At this point. It's possible that other nations aren't as represented in English language literature because of language barriers or prejudice. It's also possible that scurvy was just not as much of a problem outside of European fleets most of the time. It takes between two months and 12 weeks without vitamin C for a person to develop scurvy. And while sailors from parts of Africa and Asia were taking voyages that lasted much longer than that, overall, often they were not going that long between stops to resupply. It also seems like they may have been doing a better job of providing their crews with foods rich in vitamin C past podcast subject. Even Batuta, who was from what's now Morocco and traveled extensively during the 14th century described green vegetables and ginger being grown in tanks on Chinese vessels. He also wrote about salted ginger pepper, lemons and mangoes being loaded onto ships in preparation for long voyages. Another previous podcast subject is Zhang Huh? Who led fleets of treasure ships from China all the way to Africa in the 15th century. We don't have lists of exactly what provisions he took. But we do know that his fleets included huge supply vessels whose whole purpose was sustaining the voyage itself and that the ships had kitchens that prepared meals for crews and passengers. There are also multiple references to tea and relationships, voyages, and he does contain some vitamin C. For the most part written records of scurvy on Chinese vessels Don't really start until the 19th century when people left China bound for California during the gold rush. But European ships were another story especially is European ships crossed whole oceans. People's diets were often restricted to salted meat and hard tack and not much else. Typically, any vegetables grown on board were only for the officers. Consequently, it's estimated that scurvy killed two million European sailors between the 15th century and the 19th Century, which is when Navy started to more consistently connect scurvy preventions of things like Citrus juice. During these centuries scurvy was the leading cause of death among sailors at sea. It was also a major cause of death among enslaved Africans during the transatlantic slave trade. Although the details of that aspect have not been nearly as specifically documented, as with ships cruise and we're going to talk about some more specific scurvy information after we first pause for little sponsor break You're listening to the I Heart radio weekend podcast featuring one of the biggest podcasts of the week on the free I Heart radio up now with over 250,000 podcasts to explore I have two dogs.

"Podcast. I'm Holly fry and I'm Tracy Wilson. And we were recently lucky enough to be the guest of the national World War Two museum in New Orleans, Louisiana and the museum asked us if we would do show there about the USO and Bob hope's work with the organization to run parallel to an exhibit that they are currently running about Bob Hope called so ready for the laughter. The legacy of Bob Hope and that exhibit is gonna run until February tenth of twenty nineteen. The museum also has its own podcast about film and World War Two history called service on celluloid. We'll talk a little bit more about that at the end of the show. Yeah. I I think Tracy, and I would both say that it can't be overstated. How much we absolutely loved our time in New Orleans. Absolutely. And I spent the day that we did our show. I spent basically all of the time I had of illegal at the museum, and it was a great experience that facilities amazing. It is huge. It is. Growing. They put so much incredible care and love into every exhibit. And they have just some amazing pieces that you will not find anywhere else. And the city of courses in utter delight I grew up on the Florida, panhandle. So I spent a lot of time there. It was Tracy's first time there, it was very fun for you to release the the city for the first time. And similarly, my husband has been through there with me before but not really for an extended period of time. So it was great to to watch him, and my other friends really explore it for the first time I said during one of the the breaks during our show that we don't really put on the podcast that I have not felt so relaxed and happy in probably five years. The city is just beautiful, and it has this great culture and amazing food and a wonderful art scene, and there's just something really really magical about New Orleans. So if you've not been there highly encourage it. Yeah. Hopefully, you too will feel happy and relaxed in all new ways. But what we were going to do. Now is jump into the live show that we did. There were two museum. We hope you enjoy. Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm holly. And I'm Tracy Wilson.

"Hello and welcome to the podcast, I'm Tracy Wilson. And I'm Holly fry I know I've said this number of times lately it is a byproduct of working on a daily podcast. But today's episode has been on my list of to do's for a really long time. And we're coming up on its eightieth anniversary, which moved it up to the top of the list. Crystal knocks or the night of the broken glass took place on November ninth and tenth of nineteen thirty eight and we've been tuned it in some previous episodes about the holocaust and about World War Two, and it has also come up as a listener request. This was a massive act of antisemitic violence, and it was named for the shards of glass that were left littering the streets and more than a thousand cities and towns and the German Reich, Nazis burned, hundreds of synagogues vandalized and looted thousands of homes and businesses raped and murdered people and made about thirty thousand arrests mostly of Jewish men and those men were then sent to concentration camps. I don't think I've ever. Given a warning the strong on the show before. But this is just not an episode for young children. We're going to be discussing everything that I just said in a lot more detail. And then in a third part of this episode after the second ad break. We are going to be discussing a rape investigation that had horrifying elements on his own. I did want to make one on language before we start over the years, we've gotten a couple of notes from listeners who've told us that they don't prefer the use of the word shoe because of its history as an anti-semitic slur. But then we've also heard from other listeners that avoiding the word has its own baggage because it suggests that there's something wrong with being Jewish or that we're uncomfortable with it. Plus, it means that adherence to all the other religions can be referenced with nouns, like, Christians and Muslims and Sikhs Buddhists and Jews are the only ones that are only allowed the adjective of Jewish. So these listeners have encouraged us to use the word, it is really not possible for us to reconcile these two points of view, but I did want to acknowledge that that's a discussion that happy. Before we get into this episode. And if oaks are wondering about the timing of this episode, given the shooting at the tree of life synagogue on October twenty seventh. We scheduled this episode to come out today back in August. And it was researched and written before the shooting happened, but is being recorded in the shootings immediate aftermath. So to get into the background. We talked a lot about Adolf Hitler's rise to power in our previous episode on the night of the long knives. So we are not going to repeat all of that today..

"Hello and welcome to the podcast i'm tracy wilson and i'm holly fry so back in two thousand sixteen and also as our most recent saturday classic we did an episode on the easter rising that was an armed rebellion that struck ireland in nineteen sixteen and in that episode we made a couple of brief mentions of constants marquette which and i made an aside that she was one of the most fascinating characters that i learned about while researching that episode and that if i had found out about her earlier the episode might have been all about her about the easter rising in general so she's been on my shortlist ever since then which probably gives you a sense of how long my shortlist is since that was two years ago and we are just now getting around to it we've also gotten a few requests for show on her recently so i thought it was finally time for her to make it up to the top of that list there was a lot of conflict in ireland during this period of history and constants markovits was involved in a lot of it so we're not going to get back into the details of the easter rising again that is why we had it as our most recent saturday classic for maybe folks who are newer to the show or don't really remember so that is easy to find in the archive for that part of the story but there's a lot more to talk about so we're not going to get into the easter rising so much today constants markevic was born constance georgina gorebooth on february fourth eighteen.
