Blame Columbus For Syphilis

It is said that Columbus discovered the New World. It’s now also said that Columbus infected the old one. With syphilis. Yep, because Chris and da boys wanted to get jiggy wit da natives, they wound up bringing back syphilis to Europe (starting an epidemic) on their return from their voyage of discovery in 1495. Ouch.

    They gave the New World smallpox, so I’d say it’s even.
