Is penicillin poison?


Anti means against. Bio means life. It literally means "against life" and you're going to convince me it's not poison?

    Penicillin is a mold. For people who are allergic to penicillin, yes, penicillin Is a poison. If you are allergic to penicillin, you need some kind of medical alert bracelets pendant. Whether you choose to wear it or not is entirely up to you. I am a type 1 diabetic. I busily do not wear a medic alert bracelet or pendant. 

    Penicillin IS STILL USED for strep throat and infections. I had ani infected cut 8 to 10  years ago and I was put on o. Penicillin pills. They worked. I AM NOT allergic to penicillin.
