French Volcanic Clay Kills Antibiotic-Resistant MRSA Superbug
French Volcanic Clay Kills Antibiotic-Resistant MRSA Superbug;
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 and spreads rapidly in institutional settings such as hospitals, prisons and schools.

Researchers added the volcanic clay, called agricur, to cell colonies of MRSA, and found that 99 percent of colonies were eliminated within 24 hours. In the same time period, colonies not treated with the clay grew by 45 percent. The clay exhibited similar antibiotic effects against salmonella, E. coli and buruli.

Buruli is a flesh-eating relative of leprosy that causes disfigurement of children. Due to its prevalence in Africa, the World Health Organization has classified it as "an emerging public health threat."

The researchers do not yet know what about the clay is responsible for its antibiotic properties. While clay has a history as a folk remedy for nausea and a spa treatment, the former use has not been seriously studied and the latter is due to clay's ability to hold heat and draw out toxins.

Maybe that's why so many good natured docs been hitting the dirt!

Kids used to play outside, probably breathed in, and ate a lot of dirt. They're immune systems are much stronger.

These days, kids are inside, breathing in, and probably eating, lots of plastic.(and formaldehyde in furniture) Immune systems not good

Yeah that was in 2008 and they said it might help children in Africa with a flesh eating disease similar to leprosy. Do you think anyone ever took some of it there and tried in the 10 years since that study was published? Probably hushed it up can't patent dirt.

The healing abilities of clay are nothing short of miraculousm there are so many types of healing clay, and they are almost totally ignored, because as the man said in the post up above, you can't patent dirt.
