UK Scientists Use Medieval Remedy to Kill Superbug MRSA

UK Scientists successfully recreated and used a thousand-year-old Anglo Saxon remedy to kill hospital superbug MRSA.


The Daily Telegraph said that the recipe calls for two species of Allium -- a scientific type that includes garlic, onion, and leek -- as well as wine and oxgall, or bile from the stomach of a cow.

The paper reported that the recipe specifically calls for the mixture to be brewed in a brass vessel, purified through a strainer, and left to sit for nine days before use.
