Some potential good news for fans of the Much Vaunted National Health System©: they may be able to move on from using maggots to treat MRSA.

How’s that, you ask?


A 25-year-old student has just come up with a way to fight drug-resistant superbugs without antibiotics.”

The greatest challenge in treating these “superbugs” is that we keep throwing stronger and stringer anti-biotics at them (with who knows what effects on ourselves) and pretty soon they become inured to them (think Borg). Now, Ms Lam (a 25 year old Australian PhD student) has developed what seems to be a microscopic shuriken that literally rips the bugs to shreds.

It’s still early days, so we likely won’t be seeing this in use on humans soon, but very cool.

Kudos, Ms Lam!
