Duncan, your reading and comprehension skills are atrocious. Please re-
read the paragraph you quoted, then spend some time "comprehending"
it, then show me where i stated that "antibiotics cure viral
infections". psst: i NEVER said any such thing!

My point is: these "quacks" are prescribing antibiotics when people
don't even need them! Such disregard for immunity is frightening.
Penicillin was a gift from the gods, and we have squandered it! Thanks
free healthcare!
