There's an obvious answer

The BBC has an article up about Korean dish 'may cure bird flu' in which they note that they fed kimchi to chickens for a week and the birds started recovering. They then add the caveat:

"The researchers said the results were far from scientifically proven and if kimchi did have the effects they observed, it was unclear why. "

Having a Korean sister who's made kimchi for me before, I know the answer to this scientific dilemma. They got better so people would quit feeding them freaking kimchi!

Hey, just because it gets buried in a clay pot for a month doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it!
