They reveal why 20 people died opening Tutankhamun's tomb

A scientist claims to have understood the cause of the 'Pharaoh's Curse' which caused the deaths of more than 20 people who opened Pharaoh Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922.

“Studies by early modern field Egyptologists reveal a high incidence of abnormal deaths with symptoms of hematopoietic cancer, a phenomenon paralleled by radiation sickness caused by abnormally high levels of radiation in ancient tombs,” says the study in the scientific review journal Ross Fellows.

According to the allies, the cause of death was radiation poisoning from natural elements containing uranium and toxic waste, deliberately introduced into the sealed chamber.

The scientist explained that, according to Egyptian funerary literature, a 'saffron cake' (a yellow uranium powder) was left in graves as a “legacy of hazardous waste”.

It is believed that the ancient Egyptians knew about poisons. “The nature of the curse is clearly inscribed on some of the tombstones, and one of them accurately translates to 'Those who break this tomb shall die of a disease that no physician can diagnose,'” noted Fellowes.
