Some Believe Kimchee To Be Bird Flu Vaccine

“A report out of Seoul, Korea, points to how infected birds recovered from the flu after being fed an extract of kimchee. ‘Maybe it does help some with bird’s immune system, but it’s a big extrapolation to think it would help a human’s immune system if in fact, it really does do that,’ said human nutrition and animal science specialist Alan Titchenal.

Titchenal has his doubts how the bacteria produced by the spicy fermented cabbage would help tackle the virus, but one local business is looking at how the publicity about the avian flu may help its sales.” (MSNBC)
