Could a phytochemical derived from vegetables like broccoli be the answer to antibiotic resistant pathogens?

Posted by Staff of goGardenNow on

A recent article published by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev notes that antibiotic-resistant pathogens are playing a large part in the increase of illnesses and preventing wound healing. Interestingly, the answer to the problem could be in the form of common garden vegetables. Apparently, a phytochemical found in cruciferous plants like broccoli and cauliflower can break down the biofilm in pathogens that renders them antibiotic-resistant. Learn more about the research at Ben-Gurion University.
