Scientists have found that the common cooking herb, thyme, could be a miracle cure for the deadly MRSA bug.
Researchers at the University of Brighton, East Sussex, discovered that oils extracted from the plant can kill the bug – linked to at least 8,000 deaths each year – within two hours.
They hope the findings, published in the International Journal of Essential Oil Therapeutics, will be the first step in developing a new treatment to stop the spread of MRSA.
The infection is rampant in many hospitals and resistant to antibiotics.
