Historically Oil of Oregano has been around for centuries. It has been touted in humans, as an Antimicrobial with great healing powers and is said to work for sore throats, stomach upsets, and respiratory issues and as an antiseptic. Most of the accolades were anecdotal at best with very little if any Science to substantiate the claims being made.
Some forty years ago a movement started in Europe to ban the use of Antimicrobial Drugs as Growth Promoters. This movement was fueled by the thought that over use of Drugs as Growth Promoters was causing Drug Resistance in Animals which led to Drug Resistant Organisms in Humans. Today the ban is wide spread and gaining momentum World Wide. Here in the United States many Poultry Companies have now recognized that the General Public wants birds that are free of Antibiotics and a movement is under foot within the Poultry Industry to head in that direction.
