Could the cure for hospital superbugs be GARLIC?
Around 30% of people carry the bacteria responsible for causing MRSA. Normally harmless, but it kills up to one-fifth of people if it enters the bloodstream.
However, recent research has found that the antibiotic-resistant MRSA is now spreading outside hospitals, its usual breeding grounds. That same study has also found garlic breaks down antibiotic-resistant bacteria, allowing treatments to work again. The Danish research has found the compound in garlic to be so successful, in preliminary tests, they are looking into its possibilities to help with cystic fibrosis.
