Garlic more effective than antibiotics for food poisoning

Have you ever ate something you thought was questionable at best only to later find yourself regretting it while huddled over the toilet bowl?

Years ago I ate a McDonalds Chicken Fajita that I truly regret (I no longer eat McDonalds).  I slowly got pain in my stomach.  Then I collapsed on my bed and started burning up.   I would have called for help but I couldn’t move.  The next thing I can remember was waking up hours later in a cold sweat, feeling like I just got ran over by a truck.  It is the only time I’ve ever been knocked unconscious.

 Now, there’s a new secret weapon against food poisoning. Garlic. 

New studies have proven garlic to be more effective than two leading antibiotics against food poisoning.

 Research published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy claims that not only is garlic more effective than ciprofloxacin and erythromycin, it also takes a fraction of the time to work. The research was based on tests on the common food poisoning bacteria, Campylobacter. Further research in the African Journal of Biotechnology also concluded that raw garlic was effective against Staphylococcus aureus, another common food poisoning bacteria

So if you feel some stomach pain coming on after eating, down a couple of garlic capsules or chow down a few cloves of the raw stuff.  Your ensuing garlic breath would be the much lesser of the two evils.
