Kfuif verdad te ayudara a recordar situaciones o fechas que un maestro quiere que prendas y hasta te sacara una que otra risotada. When there are weeks, months, and even years of diligent work with little if any revelations of progress, it is truly astounding that these researchers endured to make such great discoveries.

Los Cazadores de Microbios by Paul de Kruif. I wanted to like this book, especially in the beginning. Microbois comforting a grieving mother hysterical about her baby dying of diphtheria with krui cure! I guess it shaped my life.

They were the first to figure out it was mosquitoes and ticks or even just drinking water that passed the microbes along.
