New hope for Super Drug Resistant Bacteria

We’ve been hearing for years how the over use of antibiotics is killing us all and how we are breeding superbugs that are resistant to all possible antibiotics.  The doctors, the drug companies, the hospitals, everyone in the medical field is up in arms.

Well, I just read a story about a research project that tests how the old Anglo-Saxon Remedy Cures MRSA Superbug. Yep, a 1000 year old remedy  kills MRSA. Who knew?  It seems that the metals leeched out from the brass along with the acrid liquid in the recipe produces an antibiotic that easily kills the worst of the resistant bugs. All this cool and innovative health care,  and it occurred way back in a time when everyone thought a serious infection was a product of Satan.

Oh wait,  we still think that!
