viral or fungal.

University College London, shows that the component lactoferrin destroys bacteria, fungi and viruses as soon as it
touches them, the Independent reported.
is without doubt that many people in the medical community are intensely worried
by the potentially poisonous threat of drug-resistant superbugs, which develop
rapidly to overcome any antibiotic that is systemically thrown at them. Some
research analysts have even suggested that bacterial resistance poses as serious
and hazardous threat as climate change.
in this intelligence, lactoferrin is
highly more than just another antibiotic for hospital-dwelling superbugs to conquer.
Because the protein works so fast, tearing and devouring bacteria apart in a
fraction of seconds, it is anticipated that superbugs simply won’t have time
to build up a resistance to it.
to get through first before your doctor can prescribe lactotransferrin (LTF) for you. But researchers hope that as well as defeating the notorious superbugs,
the protein will one day assist immensely to combat diseases, such as sickle-cell anemia,
that are currently well thought-out to be incurable.
