QUINTESSENCE OF DUST
Quintessence of dust...such the frame...yet...from lowly dirt there came the latest way to stop infectious diseases,(WSJ A-3;02-13-18).

From a Vero Beach, Florida soil sample...a compound was derived which might very well eliminate most infections...including the FLESH-EATING kind.
