Spreading the Word...
Saint Bonifatius came from the British Isles to bring the Word to
Fleming and Florey tried to bring Penicillin to the world.
St. Bonifatius was killed in Dokkum.
Penicillin became nonsense in Utrecht.
I, the man from Geismar, warn You:
Do not spread the wrong word. Our German Medical Journal is citing
Your paper today in an absurd manner:
"Nearly all children could safely be treated without antibiotics."
Nothing said about the exclusion of nearly 14% sick children with
imminent quinsy, suspected scarlet fever and an intercurrent disease
So we only hear: No penicillin!
And that is not right.
"Halsentzündung bei Kindern: Antibiotika selten indiziert."
