Show Notes

This Week In Wellness research conducted by Dr. Sanjida Halim Topa with colleagues at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore has shown that a major component of cinnamon essential oil could be the answer to control the dispersion of superbugs and the development of their biofilm.

As antibiotics become less and less effective against superbugs, there is an urgent need to develop alternatives to antibiotics to treat chronic biofilm-mediated infections and researchers are re-examining some traditional methods of bacterial control.
