The ancient Egyptians treated patients “by eating moldy bread and placing it on the patient’s wounds,” and no one understood why. Until the year 1928, five thousand years later, modern science arrived and the scientist Alexander Fleming discovered that penicillin had a great effect as an antibiotic on bacteria. What is the relationship between bread and penicillin? When bread rots, it secretes a fungus called PENICILLIUM, from which penicillin is derived, the antibiotic most used until now to treat some types of bacteria known to the Egyptians 5000 years ago.~ Zetas
