Beer! Just what the doctor ordered!

Instapundit links to a wired article on ancient Nubian beer, which apparently had anti-biotic properties.

It never occurred to me that tetracycline could be synthesized using all-natural material and processes that were common in the stone age.  Not that I believe that the ancient Nubians knew that they were concocting antibiotics, of course, they just knew that beer is good for you...
