A TOP British chemist stumbled across a new kitchen cleanser during his routine research, and claims that he discovered that it can be very effective against the deadly disease.

Dr Vic Garner, BSc (Hons), PhD, is an expert chemist specialising in biocide technology and molecular disease and dysfunction. He said:- "This is an amazing breakthrough in the fight against bacteria and other organisms - and it has pretty well happened by accident."

Dr Garner was researching everyday domestic products when he came across an off-the-shelf cleanser that is very effective against many theoretically "impossible" viruses.  "Bugs Away is already out there, and was launched to combat MRSA bugs in the home, but my research shows that the very clever formulation is a tremendous breakthrough in the fight against numerous other health risks.  Purely by chance, their formulation also works very effectively against avian flu." said Dr Garner.

Matt Stockdale, managing director of HomePride who make the cleaner that has only recently been launched into Tesco and Sainsburys, said:- "This is great news. We started work on Bugs Away long before there was any talk of the bird flu pandemic. But after Dr Garner's additional tests, it looks like he has hit the jackpot."

According to HomePride, Bugs Away is different to other anti-bacterial cleaners as the actives penetrate the membrane of bacteria and destroy the bug from within, without creating an emulsion for surviving bugs to feed on.  In this way it achieves its first objective of eliminating many bacteria, including MRSA, virtually on contact, and it has now proved to be equally effective against many other fungi and viruses.

Bugs Away is a typically innocuous multi-surface cleaner, but its deceptive simplicity conceals technology that can knock out even the SARS and herpes simplex viruses, and numerous other harmful diseases and if this new finding is proven correct, it kills bird flu. 


INSPIRATIONAL speakers are helping Liverpool people be their own best friend in a free event next week.  'The Art of Living in Unlimited Possibility' is a seminar open to all, to give people a helping hand on the road to happiness. Funded by the Liverpool Culture Company, speakers will include motivational orator Ali Atwell, Chief Executive Merseycare NHS Trust Alan Yates, representatives from the Liverpool Comedy Trust and many more.

Liverpool City Council's Executive Member for Culture, Councillor Warren Bradley, said:- "Everyone has daily pressures on them, but this seminar gives people an easy to use toolkit to improve their well-being. It's totally free, and most of all should be a lot of fun, after all, they say that laughter is the best medicine."

Creative Health and Well-Being Manager, Julie Hanna, from the Liverpool Culture Company, is overseeing the event. Julie said:- "We're asking how we can make the most of our strengths and talents, energy and imagination.  Even Albert Einstein, arguably one of the most intelligent men of our time, said that imagination is more important than knowledge, as knowledge is limited and imagination 'encircles the world'. We're hoping to give our imaginations a really good workout!"

This seminar is one of a series of events run by Julie that hope to increase health and well-being in the run-up to Liverpool's European Capital of Culture year in 2008.
