  1. Antibiotics is at the top of your list (though you do say it is in no particular order). But one therapy trumps even antibiotics: hand washing by physicians and surgeons ! Since the mid-19th century that practice has saved many more lives than antibiotics! I could go on to explain where I’m coming from, but then you’d accuse me of being pedantic! Suffice it to say that we should be grateful for Ignasz Semmelweiss!
