This is some good news I hope it pans out. Super-bugs could be a big problem sooner than later.


Researchers analysing 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. Antibiotic resistant superbugs could kill up to 1.3 million people in Europe by 2050, according to recent research.

That is a good news .. hope the medicine against those bugs comes out quickly. There were no mention of tuberculosis which is resistant to antibiotics as many immigrants ( refugees) have that and tuberculosis is spreading around the world.

Fabulous info. Hope it can be replicated to save the world-not just Europe. Funny, how the article just mentions saving Europe.

Traditionally a small amount of soil was wrapped up in cotton cloth and used to heal many ailments including toothache, throat and neck infections. Read more at: phys.org...


As far as I know , just good topsoil will do for external infections , and regularly eating your sandwiches with soil on your hands could not be a more natural thing to do . The closest most come to anything soil related nowadays is firing up a mower from time to time . Digging , weeding, planting crops in soil is a thing of the past to most , and they're weaker and more vulnerable for it .

The healthy plethora of multitudinous microorganisms is a balanced state , adding that culture to infections consisting of one strain creates conditions where the original infection is crowded out and eaten by other strains - see quote
There are several billion living organisms in one teaspoon of good topsoil ( M. Fukuoka / The Natural Way of Farming ) . Isolating particulars from certain areas for microbiology is ok , but not denuding the value of soil to our lives in general is more important

Weird, I just finished reading The Doomsday Key (Henry Rollins). Some interesting parallels.

He talks about the healing abilities of ancient druids, biotech, gm foods etc.



"The Doomsday Key" At Princeton University, a famed geneticist dies inside a biohazard lab. In Rome, a Vatican archaeologist is found dead in St. Peter's Basilica. In Africa, a U.S. senator's son is slain outside a Red Cross camp. The three murders on three continents bear a horrifying connection: all the victims are marked by a Druidic pagan cross burned into their flesh. The bizarre murders thrust Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma Force into a race against time to solve a riddle going back centuries, to a ghastly crime against humanity hidden within a cryptic medieval codex. The first clue is discovered inside a mummified corpse buried in an English peat bog -- a gruesome secret that threatens America and the world. Aided by two women from his past -- one his exlover, the other his new partner -- Gray must piece together the horrifying truth. But the revelations come at a high cost, and to save the future, Gray will have to sacrifice one of the women at his side. That alone might not be enough, as the true path to salvation is revealed in a dark prophecy of doom. Sigma Force confronts humankind's greatest threat in an adventure that races from the Roman Coliseum to the icy peaks of Norway, from the ruins of medieval abbeys to the lost tombs of Celtic kings. The ultimate nightmare is locked within a talisman buried by a dead saint -- an ancient artifact known as the Doomsday Key.

Let's just hope that by some miracle this discovery isn't squirrelled away from the public, only ever destined to serve the needs of the Elite after they release chaos on the Earth & seek to rebuild. Likely to end up in Svalbard seed depository, so maybe that means we might be able to use it should we survive the apocalypse. While they're hiding in their bunkers as the shtf, commandeer a large fishing vessel & head up into the Norwegian seas to reach it & liberate it for the use of humanity writ large.
