All things oregano:

This spice is such a potent germ killer that it can destroy an amazing 100% of bacteria on contact.  The Georgetown study shows it’s just as effective as penicillin in preventing the growth of bacteria such as E. coli, staph and H. pylori.

Uses in cooking:

Used liberally in lamb and chicken dishes.

Note: if you are allergic to this product, first look for the ‘other’ names that oregano can go by and check the ingredients listing on food and your pharmacy items, including any medications.
