Antibiotics are undoubtedly the greatest discovery of all time in the field of health.
With the discovery of antibiotics, man has managed to neutralize microbes for the first time in history. This fundamental victory has led society to an unprecedented structural, social and cultural revolution. Thanks to this discovery, life expectancy in Western societies has increased by several decades practically overnight. Antibiotics represent more than just scientific progress: they are a revolution with far-reaching consequences that affect the lives of entire peoples and societies. But the discovery of antibiotics has given humankind the illusion that they can control disease and dominate the natural world.
