Abelardo Aguilar discovered Erythromycin

➢ In the year 1949, Filipino Scientist Dr. Abelardo Aguilar sent an isolated soil sample of an antibiotic to his then employer Eli Lily Corp. The latter acknowledged his discovery three years later and named the antibiotic Ilosone (also Ilotycin), to honor Iloilo where Abelardo collected the soil samples. Erythromycin is touted to be a better alternative to Penicillin minus the allergic side effects. As of this day, no royalties or recognition was ever given by Eli Lily to the now deceased Dr. Aguilar. It is estimated that the corporation raked in billions from the popular drug.

Philippine Adobo is an indigent Filipino cuisine. Contrary to claims that Adobo came from the Spanish cuisine Adobar, this unnamed marinade delicacy existed long before the colonization.

In addition, Adobo (Pork or Chicken) initially only had Vinegar and Salt until the Chinese introduced Soy Sauce later in history.
