    Default Sibero-Scythian Ice Maiden, had breast cancer and medicated with marijuana

    Poor woman, not knowing why she's in pain and trying to ease the pain. This must be the earliest known case of medical marijuana.

    A team of Russian scientists has determined that the Siberian “ice maiden” likely died of breast cancer and used marijuana to treat the pain, The Siberian Times reports.

    An investigation of the mummified, 2,400 year old remains of the young woman indicates that the young woman died of breast cancer, and the researchers speculate that the marijuana found in her burial chamber was used to mitigate the pain it caused.

    “During the imaging of mammary glands, we paid attention to their asymmetric structure and the varying asymmetry of the MR signal,” Andrey Letyagin, a physiology professor from the Russian Academy of Medical Science, told the Times. “We are dealing with a primary tumour in the right breast and right axial lymph nodes with metastases.”

    “I am quite sure of the diagnosis,” he concluded. “She was extremely emaciated. Only cancer could have such an impact.”

    Even if the cancer is what took her life, however, Letyagin also discovered that the young woman had osteomyelitis, an infection of the bone marrow that could have caused arthritic symptoms in the joints and left her prone to fractures, like the ones she suffered shortly before dying.

    “We see the traces of traumas she got not so long before her death, serious traumas – dislocations of joints, fractures of the skull,” he said. “These injuries look like she got them falling from a height.”

    Natalia Polosmak, the archaeologist who discovered the young woman’s remains, said that the Pazyryks were familiar with marijuana and its analgesic effects. “Probably for this sick woman,” she speculated, “sniffing cannabis was a forced necessity.”

    This is what her skeleton looks like, you can still see the tattoos:

    Does anyone know more about her genetics? She's been tested after all.

    In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries

    From memory, an attempt to test her mtDNA and a few autosomal markers using basic PCR failed as few years ago.

    But by the looks of things they might try again using new techniques.

    Ephedra. A BMAC Cult, adopted by the Aryans, and brought to Xinjiang by the 'Tokharians' (who probably were Iranians).

    This reminded of a video I watched the other day. It was made by a guy in Norway and they were discussing the Viking era and how one woman had cancer and they had found canabis, which suggested it was used even back in those days for medical purposes. Around 17:55 that they talked about it-

    Mostly, Ephedra. But also other substances including cannabis. Information from archaeologist Victor Sarianidi who spent his life excavating Turkmenistan and northern Afghanistan.
