Seeing the Invisible

I am back to my medical blog after a much needed break.

In honor of Anton Van Leeuwenhoek, the founder of the microscope, I refer you to this animated video from the New York Times titled Seeing the Invisible.

As an infectious diseases specialist I have plenty of respect for microbes. The goal is not to kill or eradicate all bacteria, rather, to target treatments such as to minimize adverse consequences, maintain our homeostasis and preserve the symbiosis between man and microbes.
