Hi there, I'm Doctor Smith and today I'm going to teach you about a medicine called Penicillin and how it has improved our lives!
Penicillin is an antibiotic produced by mold, which kills bacteria or keeps it from making more bacteria.
Penicillin has improved our quality of life in many ways, including saving over 200 million lives since it was first discovered!
Once Penicillin was discovered in 1922, people were able to be treated for a wide range of diseases that many people use to lose their lives to before. It made infections less of a problem, and it started a new period of antibiotics.
It improves our quality of life when it is used to cure diseases such as Tonsillitis, Strep Throat, Conjunctivitis, Abscesses, Stomach Ulcers, Blood Infections and many many more
Before penicillin was discovered, there was panic over small diseases. These illnesses are now considered minor and a lot less worrying. That’s how the amazing drug Penicillin drastically improved our quality of life!
