Still on the subject of hospitals, researchers in Dundee have discovered that blackcurrants can help to combat the deadly hospital superbug MRSA. Blackcurrants have always been regarded as a superfood, particularly good in the fight against Alzheimer’s, cancer and heart disease. Apparently the fruit also contains compounds which help stop the build up of bacteria including listeria, salmonella and MRSA. Goods news for all of us as MRSA can be fatal and is resistant to antibiotics. All the more reason to eat blackcurrants!
