Natural Antibiotic, Bacterial-Fighting Foods

The news wires have been abuzz with disturbing reports concerning a newly discovered gene, called MCR-1, which reportedly makes normal bacteria resistant to the most powerful antibiotics on the market. Up until now, colistin has only used as a last-ditch antibiotic when all other bacteria-eradicating drugs fail. However, reports from the Toronto Star and the British medical journal, The Lancet, MCR-1 detected in bacteria samples in the U.K., Africa, Asia, and now Canada may signal a new bacterial-resistant reality for patients with those most severe infections.

Scientific studies have long warned about anti-biotic overuse and the development of antibiotic resistance. Luckily, certain foods (i.e., ginger, honey, garlic, and fermented vegetables) with natural antibiotic, antifungal, and antiseptic properties can help us fight bacteria and remain healthy.
