Except for the cow bile, the other ingredients sound like an great pizza or pasta sauce.

A Short History of Medicine:

2000 B.C. – Here, eat this root.
1000 A.D. – That root is heathen. Here, say this prayer.
1850 A.D. – That prayer is superstition. Here, drink this potion.
1940 A.D. – That potion is snake oil. Here, swallow this pill.
1985 A.D. – That pill is ineffective. Here, take this antibiotic.
2000 A.D. – That antibiotic doesn’t work anymore. Here eat this root. . .

It's not hard to imagine that something can kill MRSA, doesn't mean it's safe to use internally. :D
