Decline in the manufacturing of antibiotics nowadays is the major problem all around the world but the good news is that Switzerland’s experts have discovered powerful antibiotics in a common wild plant. Diseases and viruses are becoming resistant to the already present antibiotics. In this case, experts are investigating antibiotics in many plants, soil and fertilizers and even in the depths of the ocean.
Experts have said that a common wild plant “thale crase” can be a treasure of antibiotics. Scientists have discovered such compounds in its leaves that can be used for the development of new antibiotics. Usually antibiotics are obtained from bacteria. Thale crase grows in areas where the soil is less fertile, and the leaves remain in stress for their survival and the bacteria present on them eliminates many types of compounds that can be beneficial for us.
