Lice killed more of Napoleon’s army than the Russian winter

And here we thought lice were simply an itchy nuisance for Brooklyn children! A study finds that disease born lice killed more of Napoleon’s soldiers than the devastating Russian winter!

Adolph Northen's (1828-1876) painting of "Napoleon's Eetreat from Moscow".

This isn’t much of a concern for your average Brooklyn child who gets lice since a lot of the illnesses in question are now things we vaccinate against. But as a Brooklyn lice removal service we are happy that we are helping keep safe something that in other times was fatal.
