This book has a section addressing Nostradamus and his role in society during the plague years.  According to the author:

Nostradamus was a plague doctor.  Of all recovered information about cures and practices, his were by far the most practical compared with medical standards today.  He recommends against blood-letting and advocated clean water, clean air, and immediate removal of infected corpses. 

This was new information for me and I thought it was interesting.
