I didn't do an item of the week last week. Nothing stood out to me. It was almost the same this week, until today. This week's item of the week is Antibiotics. The human body is pretty adept at fighting infection and disease. It has a number of defense mechanisms. But, sometimes it needs reinforcements. I know there's a lot of talk about the overuse of antibiotics and the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains. I think there's a lot of sense to that theory. However, I also know that a lot of us could be dead if it weren't for antibiotics. So, thank you Alexander Fleming for getting it all started!
