How to make penicillin
This information could be very useful for everyone, but also and especially for the survivor who would be stuck in a context of shortage or absence of antibiotics.
The oranges and bread are among the most common two things that are about to encounter everywhere.
But what many are unaware of is that they are capable of producing penicillin . Believe it or not, this disgusting green rot that grows on the surface is none other than the fungus called Penicillium …
Imagine the following situation: You are lost in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, and your partner suffers from a deep gash in the leg made by a demoniac bearded (pleonasm). While you are able to find a shelter for the following days, he or she begins to develop a notable infection. But you know that in reality cases of infection can lead to serious problems such as kidney loss or even death if they are not treated adequately.
Without access to the facilities of the modern world or magnesium chloride – because you have been sufficiently confused to not follow the advice of Templar and forget it in your package – you still have a solution …
If you can Legitimately s’ Waiting to find no oranges in America in a context of chaos, the thing should be different with regard to bread . And even more so for the survivor foresawing to the extent that wheat is the cereal that breaks all conservation records in time.
For this prepper, here is an easy and inexpensive way to save his binomial from a capricious destiny.
– Take a piece of bread (whole wheat, no rye) and place it in a closed bag or container, keeping a constant temperature between 20 and 25 ° C.
Note that in normal times, the bread of ordinary bakeries is treated with a mold inhibitor (calcium propanoate), making it unsuitable for mushroom cultivation. The ideal is organic bread, Even made homemade with full organic flour, or war biscuits of the same ilk.
– So leave the bread until the spores begin to grow (about a week).
– Take the whole piece of bread and cut it into small pieces.
– Moisten slightly, and place the pieces in the same bag or closed container.
– Monitor the development of molds, and remove nothing until the majority of them take on a resolutely green color.
As the mushrooms grow and develop, they will move from the white to blue stage and then to the green. The photo of the header illustrates this process. Green molds are those that contain penicillin .
Note that the complete process is likely to take a couple of weeks, which would leave your partner a lot of time to pass from life to death. It would therefore be wise to always have a culture of advance in a scenario of collapse.
As can be seen from the same photo, the green zones correspond to those where the spores have grown most, ie at their maturity. Now that you have such molds, you will be able to use them for treatment. There are several ways to do this.

Option A : The first step is to take a few pieces of bread, put them in a cup, add warm water, knead everything and then pass the mashed potatoes to your partner for swallowing! The operation is to be repeated as many times as necessary, like so many doses of penicillin. It’s perfectly disgusting, but you do not do anything else when you eat a piece of roquefort, even if the taste looks better.
It is important to point out that by cultivating your green molds, you will develop in the same way other less recommendable things, which will not be as beneficial (mycotoxins). When your partner will consume your bread pieces, it will absorb them along with penicillin. In addition, the whole will have a real taste of the toilets.
Is it worth it? In a scenario of chaos, it is reasonable to think that diarrhea or stomach pain is always better than losing a leg, or even life in case of serious infection. So it can really be worth it. This remedy has been used for thousands of years in ancient cultures, and it is of course characteristic smoke that make us believe that penicillin was discovered by Fleming in the 1920s.
Option B : You take Your time and carefully isolate the precious green molds from the rest of the bread. You clean the wound your best, take the powder thus obtained, and spread it directly on the wound. You strip lightly, and you repeat the process regularly.
If you are in a hurry, you can proceed in the same way as for option A, except that you will directly spread the wound with the dough obtained in the manner of an ointment.
Know that penicillin is not the universal panacea, and that its allergy is the most frequent among all known ones. It is characterized by a rash or urticaria which can range from a minor manifestation to a dark red rash covering a large part of the body. The tongue, lips and face may present a slight swelling to an extreme swelling; Eyes may itch and inject blood and fluid. The most serious reaction is the so-called anaphylaxis, which is manifested by swelling of the airways (bronchi), Making breathing difficult. It may be accompanied by a sudden drop in blood pressure, resulting in dizziness.
This reaction can be fatal, so it is important to be aware of a possible allergy, as well as to know if you are yourself allergic to penicillin.
An interesting thing to note is that our elders also used honey to brush it on the wounds. The reason for this is that it is extremely difficult for bacteria to grow there. If the wound is fresh and clean and not yet infected, you can then apply the honey directly to preserve it from pathogenic bacteria. The fact is, Honey medical bandages are still used in operating theaters.
For emergency use, cover the entire area of the wound with honey, and tape it at a time to keep it in place and prevent anything else from penetrating.
There are of course more elaborate ways of obtaining penicillin than from oranges or bread. If you have the time and interest to do so, you will find on the Net the necessary resources for a “home” manufacturing of pharmaceutical quality, using the same process described in this article.
Such a thing might prove useless for now, as antibiotics can still be found easily.
