The enigmatic "Pharaoh's Curse" may have finally been demystified, with experts suggesting that lingering radioactive waste could be the culprit hidden within unopened tombs.

The infamous opening of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922, accompanied by a string of subsequent deaths, has long fueled speculative superstitions among archaeologists delving into Egypt's ancient secrets.

Recent research published in the Journal of Scientific Exploration (JSE) suggests that many ancient tombs scattered throughout Egypt harbor significant levels of radioactivity, posing potential health hazards such as cancer and radiation sickness to those who dare to enter, the Daily Star reported.

Inscriptions on some tombs ominously foretold the consequences of disturbing their sanctity, warning of a fate befitted with a mysterious disease defying medical diagnosis.

The origin of this alleged radiation stems from various natural elements, contributing to the ominous reputation of the curse within archaeological circles.

Tombs constructed near limestone bedrock appear particularly susceptible, leading researchers to conclude that ancient burial sites are imbued with alarming levels of radiation. Utilizing Geiger counters, experts have identified intensely radioactive interiors within numerous temples, not limited to Tutankhamun's tomb alone.

Tutankhamun's resting place is just one among several radioactive burial sites, with Osiris' grave and the foreboding Saqqara Necropolis suspected to harbor similar radiation hazards.

The prevalence of radiation poisoning aligns seamlessly with the lore surrounding ancient mastaba tombs, flat-roofed structures housing burial chambers beneath, which have seen a disturbing rise in abnormally high radiation levels across Egypt.

Even the iconic pyramids at Giza have not been spared, with adjacent sites registering readings described as intensely radioactive, further cementing the eerie legacy of the Pharaoh's Curse.
