Imagine the was a religion whose leaders told them that according to their interpretation of the bible , antibiotics weren't allowed. Clearly this would create deaths but also it would create opportunities for researchers etc who could use members of the religion as guinea pigs. And obviously there are undoubtedly issues with antibiotics - over prescription , reactions etc.
Maybe some of the medical researchers would get awards , dare I say. None of that would justify what is a false interpretation that has caused countless deaths & injury.
