Kill the Bug Keep the Patient

Killing off of a disease caused by a bacteria and keeping the patient safe seems like a "duh" moment for us, but at the turn of the 20th century, it was radical. Dr. Paul Ehrlich was a German Scientist working to cure syphilis  who originally coined the concept of a "magic bullet" that would be able to kill off bugs without killing the patient herself. Now as we so causally take antibiotics it's nice to pause and think back to those times and be gratefule.
