Can Common Spices Act as Antiseptics?

 

A couple of interesting articles HERE. The first one provides an alternative to giving farm animals antibiotics. Wonder if there are any studies to back it up?? The second article  that  follows on the site exposes a sham blood test @$490 that claims to detect all your food intolerances (if you have any). Again, no research, but this one “quacks.” They call it Pinnertest – sound familiar? Buyer beware, for sure.
