In lab tests, they said, some of the substances performed as well against salmonella and staphylococcus bacteria as some prescription antibiotic medicines

Maybe this would be better in bizzare subforum.

It displeases me that this research in being done in China.  I think this is a negative reflection on our drug industry.  It seems in the US we have a bias for chemicals, not nature?  

One of my grandchildren carries Mercia (sp?) and I would be very happy if this would resolve that problem.

I'm rather gratified to read that the headline writer shied away from telling us that this could spawn a whole new family of drugs! (Sorry)

But fancy having to strain out the amphibian poo before you can make your bedtime cocoa - Not sure about that!

I heard this over the radio the other day, apparently in medieval/ancient times they believed to place a frog in their bucket of milk would keep it from spoiling. Now we're finding out the bacteria produced from one can do such a thing.. it amazes me how smart some people from so long ago without modern technology to help them through their studies could be.

yup,  people, in general, are smart.. i guess,   and observant .  Someone noticed that the milk with the frog found in the bottom stayed fresh longer than usual?
    so... they tried it again and it still worked !*  

It's like Yogi Berra said....  " sometimes you can see a lot ,  just by looking "     :)
