  • Туманное Утро

    Очередной раз убеждаюсь, что люди идиоты.1)фармацевтика и здравоохранение - это бизнес, им не нужны здоровые люди (которые заботяться о своем здоровье и не болеют), им нужны пациенты, которых можно лечить и продовать им антибиотики.2)создатель пенецилина, когда ему вручали нобелевскую премию, сказал. "Не страшны бактерии, сколько человек." (Не помню фразу). Мы можем победить вирус антибиотиками, но вирус тоже адаптируеться к антибиотиками и появляеться супер-вирус, которого ничто не берет.Поэтому XXI век, это век заболеваний. Когда мы сами помогли нашему "врагу", сделав его сильнее. Вместо того, чтоб стать самим сильнее. Не есть антибиотики, а укреплять свои иммунитет самим.

    Scientists take fages out of a river or dirt and test them. They take the weapons out of any backyard.If someone ever told you to just take a stroll or go to the beach in the old days, they were basically telling you to update your virus database.

    whenever us humans meddle with nature, it usually does not end well. i just hope the Bacteriophage does not change into something that could harm us too.
