Garlic Combats Food Poisoning

Garlic may be the best weapon against a type of bacteria responsible for millions of cases of food poisoning in the United States every year, according to a new study. Researchers from Washington State University discovered that a compound found in garlic was 100 times more effective than antibiotics at killing Campylobacter, most common cause of food-borne bacterial illness in the United States. The compound, diallyl sulphide, which is responsible for the garlic smell that sticks to your hands when you cook, worked better and faster than the common antibiotic treatments for Campylobacter, erythromycin and ciprofloxacin/Amir Khan, International Business News.

Bloggy: Beware Of Biggs Junction

Mr_Bloggy: If you ever stop for gas in Biggs, Oregon and are like SO HUNGRY you'll even eat chicken wings from under a heat lamp next to BBQ burritos and crap like that and you're at the big Shell, I think, w Linda's or Laura's restaurant or something and a Subway, my advice is show a little patience and hit the Subway or the cafe, because otherwise you might do as I did and take a bite from the first chicken wing and realize it's kinda not right and skip the other three, which is really smart thinking because if you'd eaten the other three along w the bite of the first you might have DIED FROM THE DIARRHEA instead of just been seized and wrack with colon detonating cannon and firehose blastings into the night.
