Maybe this information will help to many people who have limited resources or might be living in poverty. The simple breads and oranges are part of the most used household kitchen things. But, did you know that the bread and the oranges can produce penicillin just by letting them on same place to age. That green and disgusting mold that appears on the surface of the bread is called Penicillium.
Now it’s time for one experiment. Imagine that you are living in the zombie apocalypse. Your partner in a dash has deeply slashed the leg. As you take care, the next couple of days, he or she starts to develop an infection. You should remember that in the real world, those cases with infection can result in some serious health concerns, death, or loss of a limb, if it is left untreated. Without those modern medical things would you know what will help you to heal your partner? Well, here we will show you an easy and cheap way to save your partner from that infection.
- Take one bread and put it in a container or a bag
- Let it sit until the spores start to form
- Take the whole bread and then break it up into small pieces
- Add moisture – light misting – and then place the pieces of bread in the same container or bag
- Watch the mold growth and don’t remove it until most of the mold culture starts to turn clearly green
As the mold starts to grow it will take on blue, green and white stages. The green mold that you can see in the photo here shows this point. The green color will have doses of penicillin. You can see that the green places are where the mold has developed the largest. Well, now you have the green mold, and you can start to use the mold as a treatment. There are a few ways of uses.
Option A – take the pieces of bread, fill up one big cup full of them and then add warm water, but not boiling. Mix them together and then consume it. Repeat this process if it is necessary, especially like a daily dose of the penicillin. It is essential to say that while you are growing your mold, you can grow some other things, but not all of them are helpful. When you eat the bread, you will get both penicillin and the bad thing. It tastes horrible too. But does that bad thing outweigh the good thing? In this scenario, upset stomach or diarrhea are much less serious health problems in a comparison with the infection. This cure has been used for many years in the ancient cultures, and also it has been seen for many centuries in the folk remedies around the US.
Option B – separate just the green mold from your bread very carefully. Clean well the wound, take the ‘scrapings’ from your bread and apply them topically over the wound. Cover it lightly, and repeat this regularly.
There is one interesting fact that dates back to Imhotep, the ancient doctors used to cover the wounds with honey. They do this because it is really difficult for the bacteria to grow on the honey. If the wound is clean and fresh and infection free, you should apply a little honey to the wound in order to preserve it from bacteria. In the modern emergency rooms today are still used the medical grade honey bandages. You can cover the wound in honey, and then wrap the place to keep the honey in place.
There are some different and advanced ways to make the penicillin from oranges and breads than the mentioned above. If you have time and more resources, you can make a pharmaceutical grade penicillin. But with the wide availability and low cost of the penicillin in the stores today, this might not be practical. But, if you found yourself in the zombie apocalypse, this useful information may save your life.
