Can you help me answer this question:

Could columbus have done anything to halt the exchange of disease between the taino and the Europeans?

    If he hadn't allowed the sailors to have shore leave, that would have kept diseases from being exchanged at that point. However, if the New World was to be "discovered" and inhabited, then the Indians were bound to be exposed to European diseases of all sorts.
