TASMANIAN DEVIL MILK MIGHT FIGHT ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANT BUGS

This could prove useful in the fight against superbugs


Milk from Tasmanian devils could offer up a useful weapon against antibiotic-resistant superbugs, according to Australian researchers.
The marsupial’s milk contains important peptides that appear to be able to kill hard-to-treat infections, including MRSA, say the Sydney University team.
Experts believe devils evolved this cocktail to help their young grow stronger.
