Honey on hospitals' menus

More on the manuka v MRSA story: Dr Rose Cooper (who I mentioned in March) has been awarded a £28,000 grant to fund research into how manuka honey can combat the MRSA superbug. Dr Rose Cooper is based at the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff, and the grant comes from the British Society for Anti-Microbial Chemotherapy for 12 months' research. (Hat-tip to Martin.)

The MRSA superbug is rife in many British hospitals where it takes an estimated 5000 lives a year.
