    Read an earlier article about "no such thing as non-contagious bacterial pneumonia." If you do a google search with a time frame set to the beginning of the internet to Sep 01 2016 (pre-diagnosis), there are tons of articles that turn up with the phrase "non-contagious bacterial pneumonia" showing dates as early as 1996, yet when you look at the links and search within the text, no text containing "non-contagious bacterial pneumonia" exists.

    I've been trying to wrap my head around this stuff today and this is some of the stuff I came up with.
