Shows I haven't done a chem lab in 6 months I guess lol. Been in bio labs, pretty sure we use vinyl. At work they don't care lol vinyl gloves + super concentrated lime away "caution dissolves stainless steel".
Yes! "resistant bacteria". But to what I might ask? I'm not blind to what the doctors do. If one antibiotic doesn't work try another
. Like the oral surgeon after I got all 4 wisdom teeth pulled back in January. Its still not healed yet. One got infected from food ofc. They thought they fixed it and it was good for month. Then same problem, except this time it was already healed completely. They don't want to surgically fix it. Every time I go back its the same thing lol. Doctor says,"it might be scar tissue, here's some penicillin if its not". "O, the penicillin didn't work. Here's some Amoxicillin try that." I can tell you neither worked I will probably go back in a couple weeks again. Until recently I was in the Bio-Med tract, but you don't even need that to tell what he is trying to do. As you point out though, I wasn't too surprised that the penicillin didn't work. We've only been killing stuff with it for for half a century.
Now I must go completely of topic and share something I just learned. "A moldy cantaloupe in a Peoria, Illinois, market in 1943 was found to contain the best and highest-quality penicillin after a worldwide search. The discovery of the cantaloupe, and the results of fermentation research on corn steep liquor allowed the United States to produce 2.3 million doses in time for the invasion of Normandy in the spring of 1944.". I have like tons of questions now.....
