Sample text

Soldiers returning home from Europe after the end of World War I in 1918 unknowingly brought along a terrible influenza (or flu) virus known as the Spanish flu. It infected more than half a billion people around the world — that was 1 in every 10 people alive — and killed many of them. People tried their best to stop it from spreading. Cinemas, theaters and churches were closed, and public meetings and sports events were canceled. Many cities passed a law that everyone had to wear a surgical mask.

Finally, in about 1941, doctors had a medicine to treat bacterial pneumonia, diphtheria, scarlet fever and other bacterial illnesses that had killed so many people. Penicillin also saved the lives of thousands of soldiers wounded on the battlefield during World War II. Making Bacteria Sick When bacteria come across Penicillium mold and try to gobble it up, the mold does what any creature would do: protect itself. It produces a kind of poison. It’s this poison that people call penicillin and use as an antibiotic.

Doctors know that drinking lots of fluids helps a cold, and they know that warm liquids act like a fever to raise your body temperature and slow down the virus. But chicken soup seems to help even more than that, and doctors can’t explain why. In one experiment, researchers gave one group of cold-sufferers plenty of cold water. They gave a second group the same amount of hot water, and gave a third group hot chicken soup. The people who drank the chicken soup got much more relief of their cold symptoms, especially congestion, than any of the others.
