Re: Antibiotics

Hi all - I've been pretty busy with the Ron Paul campaign - and my garden :) so sorry we haven't scheduled any meetups yet - I just wanted to pass along what some information on a hard-to-find product that IMHO if TSHTF - will be worth MORE than gold...you can die from a simple cut without sanitation and hospitals.

For instance - did you know that it's not uncommon for a few people to get quite sick after a tornado because it whips up fungi from the dirt so people can get massive fungal infections from the wind injecting dirt directly into skin, or from cuts on the scattered debris?  Now ya do.
 
From wiki's 2011 Joplin tornado page: On 10 June 2011, it was announced that a rare fungal infection, Zygomycosis, had been noted to cause at least eight serious cases of wound infection among the injured survivors, confirmed by reports to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.[39]

Now, I am not a doctor and this is not medical advice, but I wanted to pass along some interesting reviews/info on the subject of antibiotics:

From my reading this and other sites, it seems as if pet/fish meds are pretty much produced in the same factories as the regular meds. 

Available on several sites, I've ordered from:

Also available on ebay:

and just for giggles, here is a free download of the well-reviewed "When there is no Doctor":
