Abstract:

Microorganisms found in dirt have yielded antibiotics that can kill pathogens resistant to multiple drugs. One gram of soil contains at least 1,000 bacterial species. This study attempts to determine the microorganisms that will be eliminated or killed after treating the soil sample with garlic, ginger, oregano and cinnamon extracts.
