Fun Fact

9/8/2017 (Permalink)

Did you know that moldy bread was used by the Ancient Egyptians to put on their wounds? This is a fact I just learned recently about mold. After learning about it, it completely makes sense! The Egyptians did in fact use moldy bread to treat their wounds to get rid of any bacteria that could cause infection. Why does this make so much sense? Well if you know where penicillin comes from then you can understand why it makes so much sense. However, this practice was used long before the drug penicillin came about and the discovery of penicillin was kind of accidental! There are so many more questions that will go unanswered after I read about this. Like why didn't we test mold further for its benefits, or did we test further? I think I know what the rest of my day is going to consist of... Doing extensive research about mold and the many benefits it has. As well as looking at the timeline between The Egyptians using moldy bread and then the discovery of penicillin to see if there is any correlation. Or perhaps did we think they were crazy for doing that but didn't realize the benefits until after we discovered them ourselves? So many unanswered questions. Time to do some research to answer all these questions! I would not recommend testing this fact at home! There are so many different kinds of mold!
