Summary
One hundred years ago, a mysterious and alarming illness spread across America's South, striking tens of thousands of victims. No one knew what caused it or how to treat it. People were left weak, disfigured insane, and in some cases, dead. Gail Jarrow tracks this disease, commonly known as pellagra, and highlights how doctors, scientists and public health officials finally defeated it
