New [Old] Alternatives 

As I've said before, I'm a big fan of herbal medicine: if the witch-doctors' cures didn't work at all, they would have disappeared after not too long.

A new study released yesterday by ACS details the very potent antibiotic actions of a compound in cilantro. In a word: duh. Anyone who's been studying herbal medicine knows that virtually any kitchen spice has anti-microbial activities...that's why they came to be used: survival value. Learning what compounds are active is important (and exciting), but I really wish people would stop acting so bloody surprised!
