1,000-year-old onion and garlic eye remedy kills MRSA
Scientists recreated a 9th Century Anglo-Saxon remedy using onion, garlic and part of a cow's stomach.I fear that the more we think we are the best, the more we actually slip into post-modernism (meaning "get beyond this modernist seeking when we should be seeking to be simpler like the noble savages".)
They were "astonished" to find it almost completely wiped out methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, otherwise known as MRSA.
Their findings will be presented at a national microbiology conference.
The remedy was found in Bald's Leechbook - an old English manuscript containing instructions on various treatments held in the British Library.
"But we were absolutely blown away by just how effective the combination of ingredients was," she [Dr Freya Harrison] said.
As that is the condition that the self-assessed elite Progs want to inflict on us lesser humans, I offer this story as one lesson.
Let it help us recall that older -- and what is too often presumed lesser -- generations actually can provide us with not only good solutions, but remind us of something considerably more dangerous. That the cultures subjected to Prog dominance are flattered about their alleged intelligence. They are indoctrinated in complacency (read compliance) to have the carefree nature of Eloi: "Why seek more knowledge when you already are the best?"
The intent is to make the subjects dumber, more vulnerable to things like disease, and easier to control. That father of the Morlocks, H. G. Wells, set the Prog standard and it seems that they continue to follow toward his goal.
Even if this blog post got wider distribution, I don't expect very many people to take it seriously. That is truly sad.
Because if it were taken seriously, such a response would actually start some real countermeasures rolling. There is greatness to be gained in remembering to be humble.
