Asked in Health, Conditions and Diseases, Native American History, Public Health and Safety

What were Diseases that the Native Americans gave the Europeans?

User Avatar
The Native Americans actually did give the Europeans a few diseases however they are debatable. One of the diseases that Europeans contracted on their way to the New World and at the new world was typhus. Another disease that affected the people coming to the New World was syphilis, now see this is the debatable disease because many believe that It was contracted by Hispaniola but it could still be considered something that was given to the people who came to the New World. Now I do not believe the Europeans got this disease but the Spaniards did.

How much sleep does a 12 year old girl need?

I'd say about 8 hours. At 12 years, you are still growing and need sleep to do so. But if you are still tired after 8 hours, try to sleep longer.
