Discovery!

Following World War 1, Fleming searched for anti-bacterial agents, having witnessed the death of many soldiers from catching diseases from infected wounds. His discovery of penicillin was completely accidental.

"When I woke up just after dawn on September 28, 1928, I certainly didn't plan to revolutionize all medicine by discovering the world's first antibiotic, or bacteria killer," Fleming would later say,"But I suppose that was exactly what happened".

Fleming's substance, penicillin, has been released today, March 7, 1929. Ask your doctor about it now.
