 I.Q. Quiz

That is a myth.

FALSE.

Diseases can be caused by different kinds of germs. Some are caused by bacteria, and others are caused by viruses. Anti-bacterial drugs – or antibiotics – will help fight diseases caused by bacteria, but they don’t work with viruses. Because colds and flu are caused by viruses, antibiotics won’t help with those diseases.

True or False:

2. Antibiotics are good for treating strep throat.
