Soil found in rural Northern Ireland could hold the key to fighting antibiotic resistance, researchers believe.
Doctors and scientists are desperately searching for new ways to kill superbugs – and the new finding could pave the way.
A study found dirt from County Fermanagh can stop the growth of drug-resistant bacteria, such as the hospital superbug MRSA.
The discovery has been hailed as an ‘important step forward’ in the progress against antibiotic resistance, considered one of the biggest threats to humanity.
As of late yesterday, there have been 32 stricken with E. coli in 11 States thus far. Although no deaths have been reported, 13 people have been hospitalized – one with kidney failure.

Outbreak of E. coli Infections Linked to Romaine Lettuce
Advice to Consumers, Restaurants, and Retailers:
CDC is advising that U.S. consumers not eat any romaine lettuce, and retailers and restaurants not serve or sell any, until we learn more about the outbreak. This investigation is ongoing and the advice will be updated as more information is available.
- Consumers who have any type of romaine lettuce in their home should not eat it and should throw it away, even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick.
- This advice includes all types or uses of romaine lettuce, such as whole heads of romaine, hearts of romaine, and bags and boxes of precut lettuce and salad mixes that contain romaine, including baby romaine, spring mix, and Caesar salad.
- If you do not know if the lettuce is romaine or whether a salad mix contains romaine, do not eat it and throw it away.
- Wash and sanitize drawers or shelves in refrigerators where romaine was stored. Follow these five steps to clean your refrigerator.
According to the Center for Disease Control, 1.25 million people suffer from type 1 diabetes in the US alone. So far, it can only be managed with diet and regular doses of insulin, but scientists at UT Health San Antonio have invented a way of curing the disease in mice that may one day do the same for humans even with type 2 diabetes.
Dems Won’t Tell Voters How Radical ‘Medicare For All’ Is
Remember when Republicans said that ObamaCare was designed to fail so Democrats could push “single payer?” That was called conspiracy mongering. But guess what? ObamaCare is failing. And Democrats are now pushing “Medicare for All” as the solution.
Trouble is, Democrats aren’t telling voters anything about what “Medicare for All” means. Probably because the plan would be the most radical socialization of health care on the planet.
Everyone from New York socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke has called for “Medicare for All.” So far, 123 congressional Democrats and 16 Democratic Senators have co-sponsored “Medicare for All” bills.
Over 65 million years ago, an asteroid some 10 km (6 mi) wide crashed into the Earth and wiped out the dinosaurs. Strangely, the legacy of this huge space rock could include a treatment for cancer after scientists from the UK and China demonstrated that iridium – a rare metal delivered to Earth by the asteroid – can be enlisted to kill cancer without harming healthy cells.
