Ain’t Modern Medicine Wonderful!

A particularly bad lung dusting while woodworking 30 years has made me susceptible to pneumonia every winter.  If was not careful, bronchitis would lead to pneumonia and you can die from that.

 Well the doctors have developed a vaccine for pneumonia and sure enough people don t die of it anymore.  It turns out they now die of really really bad bronchitis.

 Now that progress.  But at least the deaths from pneumonia are down.

 ps  Wear a dust mask!

I suppose you know there are several woods (mainly tropical woods) their dust is very toxic (if you touch them no, only dust). i.e. iroko

There is progress. I remember the VoA broadcast about pneumonia in 1980-s. They say: pneumonia is not cureable in home, it`s only in clinic conditions. "The symptoms of pneumonia are the next ..."
Two years ago I catch the pneumonia, and the doctor said "pneumonia is inhome cureable" and prescribed the medcine for me. And really the 3 tabulettae for 3 days deleted my temperature 39 degrees C, which was about a week. So the medicine and pharmaceutics had really progressed for the last 20-25 years.
