Due to the events that have already taken place, we have seen a massive build up of Sulphuric acid and Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
This in turn has increased the strength of acid rain and lowered the pH value of the soil, it has also released further toxic metals to the point where the soil can no longer support the growing of crops particularly fruit and vegetables.
A famine of fruit and vegetables means that people will develop Scurvy.
Scurvy is a skin condition which used to plague the Egyptians but most commonly sailors used to suffer with Scurvy caused by a deficiency of vitamin C due to a lack of fresh fruit and vegetables during long voyages. The sufferer breaks out in ugly and painful sores.
Revelation Chapter 16 V 1 – 2 says:
The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly and painful sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshipped his image. (NIV)
During the Irish Potato Famine in the 1800·s about 50,000 people died of Scurvy.
To prevent Scurvy, British sailors used to carry lime juice hence the term “Limeys” and German sailors used to carry Sauerkraut, hence the term “Krauts”
