oh, it's most effect against gram-positive bugs. which is only a small part of the bug universe.
Which means it is partially effective against other bugs. Having read Susceptibility Reports from the labs on bacterial cultures, I am not sure I would want to ingest this without further studies into what it does, does not and only cripples in the bacterial kingdom. Too much playing with bacteria has created enough super-bugs.

I think that like everything else that is done, they'll do it without even telling us but about 10% of what they find out. Then we'll become their test subjects.

"Oh, we did tell you on page 4,398 of the heath report to west, downward slobovia. Didn't you get a copy?"

30 years later, when heath problems show up, they'll say; "We had no way of knowing that this would harm anyone."

Or, it might work perfectly and not harm anyone.

We'll find out the hard way as usual.

I'm a bit worried about this being added to our food supplies. I already have a condition that causes GI distress, how will I know if it is a worsening of my condition or induced by the additive? I guess I'll figure it out when I am at death's door...

My landlord is going to be angry when I till up the courtyard to plant my own unadulterated foods.
