Antibiotic Effects of Honey and Vinegar in Modern Medicine

The world of modern medicine is undergoing a profound shift. With the proliferation of antibiotic-resistant superbugs, there’s an urgent need to find alternative solutions. Amid this challenge, two time-tested natural remedies, honey and vinegar, are emerging as promising candidates in the fight against resistant pathogens. A dive into historical uses and modern research Throughout human ...

Antibiotic Resistance Could Kill 300 Million People by 2050

A report commissioned by the UK government estimates that by 2050, antibiotic resistance will kill 300 million people if no action is taken. The annual global death toll will reach 10 million, and up to US$100 trillion (£64 trillion) will be lost to the global economy by 2050. The issue goes far beyond health policy, and on ...

New Study Shows Microplastics Turn Into ‘Hubs’ for Pathogens, Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria

It’s estimated that an average-sized wastewater treatment plant serving roughly 400,000 residents will discharge up to 2,000,000 microplastic particles into the environment each day. Yet, researchers are still learning the environmental and human health impact of these ultra-fine microplastics, less than 5 millimeters in length, found in everything from cosmetics, toothpaste and clothing microfibers, to our food, air, ...

Cause of Antibiotic Resistance Has Been Identified

Scientists have confirmed for the first time that bacteria can change form to avoid being detected by antibiotics in the human body, which can lead to antibiotic resistance. Studying samples from elderly patients with recurring urinary tract infections, the Newcastle University team used state-of-the-art techniques to identify that bacteria can lose their cell walls — ...

Antibiotic Resistance: How We Can Fight Back Against Superbugs

When antibiotics were first discovered, it seemed as if we had found an easy and extremely effective way to deal with illnesses caused by infectious organisms. However, many organisms are now morphing into superbugs, developing properties that make antibiotic use ineffective. This is a serious health problem. If we do not find a way to ...
