E. coli and Garlic

BRUSSELS/BERLIN - German health officials said there had been a dramatic increase in the number of people infected in an E. coli outbreak which has killed 16 and whose source is still unknown. The outbreak has made more than 1,500 people ill in eight European countries, and led to an international row over the source of the contamination.

The Health Protection Agency said four more people in the UK have food poisoning suspected to be linked to a toxic E.coli outbreak. Those affected have bloody diarrhea and have recently traveled to Germany. In addition to three Britons and four German nationals who are already being treated in the UK, including three for haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS) - a deadly complication of E.coli.

Seventeen people have died. The number of HUS cases in Germany has risen to 520 and 1,213 cases have been reported. Globally more than 1,800 people have been infected in the outbreak, and 18 people have died. People in 12 countries have fallen ill.

The outbreak is one of the biggest and deadliest in recent world history. In 1996, 12 people died during a Japanese outbreak, while seven died in a Canadian outbreak in 2000. ... The World Health Organization (WHO) says the origin "of the outbreak still remains unknown".

The bug has now been identified in people in the Czech Republic, France and the United States, as well as Germany, Austria, Denmark, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. Experts from WHO said the strain of E.coli was extremely rare ... and  is known to be resistant to many antibiotics, making treatment difficult.

Antibiotics prohibit viruses from reproducing. Garlic does not allow a virus to socialize, reproduction is not an option. There are no resistant mutations – epidemic defunct. (See: March 22, 2011, Garlic - Better Than Penicillin!) Excerpt from: Barks Herbs Roots Twigs - The Earth Pharmacy© 

An enhanced solution of garlic can be an effective antibacterial agent.

My research supports my hypothesis to determine the antibacterial quality of a garlic plant can be increased by foliar applications of a garlic extract solution by showing limited growth of E.coli bacteria when treated with a foliar garlic solution. …The antibacterial quality of the experimental plants was affected by the garlic spray. They were affected by a percentage of 284% bacteria growth retardation.

Garlic has been shown in vitro (in laboratory petri dishes) to kill bacteria also. In some important research done in China garlic was shown to inhibit the growth of all of the following microorganisms: Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhimurium, Vibrio parahaemolyticus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris, Staphylococcus aureus, Mycobacterium phlei, Streptococcus faecalis, Bacillus cereus and Micrococcus luteus.

The TONIC Nutritional Garlic Supplement contains up to a pound of garlic formulated to deliver maximum protection with absolutely no unpleasant smell. Made from the original centuries-old recipe given to prevent colds and flu; it is a proven panacea for the human body.
