Sauerkraut may cure bird flu.

Scientists in Seoul believe the German cabbage contains a bacteria that fights the disease.

Researchers fed 11 out of 13 chickens infected with avian flu with fermented cabbage - the chickens showed signs of recovery within a week.

According to The Sun Professor Kang Saouk said: "The feed helps the fight against bird flu and other flu viruses."
