Whatever happened to the cocaine and nicotine egyptian mummy mystery? Were these mummies simply contaminated in modern times and, if so, how did these substances make their way deep into the body cavity, which also manifested high levels of nicotine and cocaine-like compounds? Last I read, there were many possible explanations for what was discovered. anyone have any new info on the subject? thanks.
