Volcanic Clay Kills Superbugs!

Natural Health
Weird! Some French volcanic clay apparently kills 99% of the bacteria that causes MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.) The mechanism is not fully understood, but it is unusual. French Volcanic Clay Kills Antibiotic-Resistant MRSA Superbug From Natural News: "Researchers have discovered that a clay made from volcanic ash in France has powerful antibiotic properties and is capable of killing even antibiotic-resistant superbugs such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). 'It's fascinating,' said researcher Shelley Haydel, a microbiologist at Arizona State University. 'Here we are bridging geology, microbiology, cell biology. A year ago, I'd look at the clay and say, 'Well, that's dirt.'' MRSA is an antibiotic-resistant variety of the common bacteria that causes staph infections. This makes it more likely to develop potentially fatal complications, as it can proceed untreated for longer…

Now, first of all, we have to understanding that the RDA is what it says it is... the MINIMUM Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for an average individual. We also need to ask, "Who is doing the 'recommending?'" The FDA, of course. And, we always trust them, right? (I am, of course, being facetious!) I would recommend reading the works of such luminaries as Dr. Linus Pauling for more information on what is, and is…
