New antibiotic discovered in rainforest soil

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A brand new antibiotic has been discovered in the soil of a tropical rainforest, and its unique properties could make it particularly attractive for use in agriculture.

Known as phazolicin, this previously unknown compound was recently isolated deep in the tropical forests of Los Tuxtlas, Mexico; it appears the new antibiotic can strike against several types of bacteria.

Cant go wrong with Garlic. raw garlic on your bacon butty.  (add mayo for Garlic Mayo) effective against bacteria and viruses. trouble is with anything natural you have to have it regular, this doesnt mean you don't get sick, but when you do symptoms are less and recovery time faster.

while im on the subject of health food. (every little helps)

Depending on how effective it is, it could just be used under very tight controls.  The biggest reason for the mutation of bacteria so that they are resistant is that they've been overprescribed and people don't finish the course as instructed.
