Irish Antibacterial Supersoil

Bacteria found in ancient Irish soil halts growth of superbugs -- new hope for tackling antibiotic, resistance,
Swansea University, December 27, 2018.

MAIN POINTS

Irish Supersoil Effective Against Superbugs
“...soil from Ireland long thought to have medicinal properties have discovered that it contains a previously unknown strain of bacteria which is effective against four of the top six superbugs that are resistant to antibiotics, including MRSA.”

They have named the new strain Streptomyces sp. Myrophorea.

Boho Highlands
“...originated from an area of Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, which is known as the Boho Highlands. It is an area of alkaline grassland and the soil is reputed to have healing properties.”

Irish Inhibitions
“Inhibited the growth of four of the top six multi-resistant pathogens identified by the WHO as being responsible for healthcare-associated infections: Vancomycin resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE), methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Klebsiella pneumonia, and Carbenepenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumanii

“Inhibited both gram positive and gram negative bacteria, which differ in the structure of their cell wall; usually gram negative bacteria are more resistant to antibiotics”

 

Bottom Line

Getting dirty with the correct dirt is, apparently, good for you…

Mothers of the Future will not be warning their children they was their dirty mouths out with soap, but of the need to force-feed their profane children some Irish Supersoil...
