Project Title: Energy Drink Effects on Blood Pressure and Heart Rate

Antibiotics are commonly prescribed to treat bacterial infections. However, overuse and misuse of these drugs has caused a major worldwide problem of antibiotic resistance. On the other hand, people in many countries are dying simply due to unaffordability and poor access to these drugs. Therefore, it is important to find an alternative that would be effective, affordable, and cause minimal side effects. Kitchen spices are known to have antibacterial properties. In this experiment, antibacterial effects of spices and synthetic antibiotics were investigated. Results demonstrated remarkable antibacterial activity of garlic individually, and in combination with synthetic antibiotic streptomycin.
