To that end, the state supervised the transport of flour from regions with a surplus to areas of scarcity, a policy that became standardized during World War II. The system did not allow the bakers to choose with which millers they would work, even if they discovered flaws in their flour.
In addition, Kaplan writes, in the wake of growing commercial competition, flour sent to distant regions was often of an inferior grade and in some cases was also mixed with other materials — a process that affected its quality and could even be life-threatening.
The cost of living was extremely high, and the quality of many food products, including bread, was almost as poor as it was during the Nazi occupation. Several investigations were conducted by law enforcement and medical experts to trace the source of the cursed bread. One of them found that the contamination had been caused by the presence of mercury in pesticides used in the rye fields. Another ended with the suspicion that the sacks of flour had been transported unhygienically in polluted train cars.
A third inquiry determined that fuel leaks from nearby factories contaminated the local water supply. In any case, he did not believe that ergotism was the cause of the debacle.
According to Kaplan, Ergot contamination would not have affected only one sack of grain in a single bakery but would have been more widespread. The names of the other bakers disappeared from the list of suspects, but Roch Briand was arrested and his bakery shut down.

Hey Lory! I love a Flower Touch interior decoration in the house. The ultimate design of townhouse french country home. You have a beautiful home.
There are several stages of homes of empty nesters. Yes at first you need less room. But then your kids get married. In my case they lived in other states so you need extra guest rooms. Then they began to have children. So of course you want room for them too. When we retired we built a 4 bedroom house with a game room and pool.
We have enjoyed it immensely and having it for the grandchildren. Now the grandchildren are grown and we rarely need this big house. Thank you so much! I actually like having the room.
