Best general purpose media?

What is the best general purpose media for both bacteria and fungi, I have had a read around and found that nutrient agar will support the growth of most bacterial species.

I wouldn't have thought a susceptibility to air, heat, cold, acid, or alkali would make it any easier to cure because most pathogens are to an extent. Once it is in the blood I would not have thought you could use those factors against the virus without killing the patient. Your idea of using siRNA ...
