Cocaine and tobacco in Egyptian mummies
When the Egyptian pharaoh Ramses II’s mummy was analyzed, scientists found traces of tobacco, cocaine and hashish in the mummy’s intestines. Following this, other mummies were examined and the findings were similar. Since all these plants are native to the American continent, the discovery was difficult to interpret by many experts because it would totally change part of the history.
Did the Egyptians discover America? Some people think that the Vikings would be the first to go there, others are convinced that the Chinese were the first to set foot there, but with these discoveries, many doubts have emerged.
