That said, wow this is great news! Eureka Alert, science news, vinegar kills TB and other mycobacteria.

VINEGAR KILLS TUBERCULOSISB AND OTHER MYCOBACTERIA

PUBLIC RELEASE: 25-FEB-2014
Vinegar kills tuberculosis and other mycobacteria
AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR MICROBIOLOGY
The active ingredient in vinegar, acetic acid, can effectively kill mycobacteria, even highly drug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis, an international team of researchers from Venezuela, France, and the US reports in mBio®, the online open-access journal of the American Society for Microbiology.
Acetic acid might be used as an inexpensive and non-toxic disinfectant against drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB) bacteria as well as other stubborn, disinfectant-resistant mycobacteria.
Work with drug-resistant tuberculosis bacteria carries serious biohazard risks. Chlorine bleach is often used to disinfect TB cultures and clinical samples, but bleach is toxic and corrosive. Other effective commercial disinfectants can be too expensive for TB labs in the resource-poor countries where the majority of TB occurs.
"Mycobacteria are known to cause tuberculosis and leprosy, but non-TB mycobacteria are common in the environment, even in tap water, and are resistant to commonly used disinfectants. When they contaminate the sites of surgery or cosmetic procedures, they cause serious infections. Innately resistant to most antibiotics, they require months of therapy and can leave deforming scars." says Howard Taki, senior author on the study and head of the Laboratory of Molecular Genetics at the Venezuelan Institute of Scientic Investigation (IVIC) in Caracas.
"Many cosmetic procedures are performed outside of hospital settings in developing countries, where effective disinfectants are not available." Taki says, "These bacteria are emerging pathogens. How do you get rid of them?"
While investigating the ability of non-TB mycobacteria to resist disinfectants and antibiotics, Taki's postdoctoral fellow, Claudia Cortesia stumbled upon vinegar's ability to kill mycobacteria. Testing a drug that needed to be dissolved in acetic acid, Cortesia found that the control, with acetic acid alone, killed the mycobacteria she wanted to study.
"After Claudia's initial observation, we tested for the minimal concentrations and exposure times that would kill different mycobacteria," says Taki. Since the Venezuelan lab does not work with clinical TB, collaborators Catherine Vilchèze and William Jacobs, Jr. at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York tested TB strains and found that exposure to a 6% solution of acetic acid for 30 minutes effectively kills tuberculosis, even strains resistant to almost all antibiotics.

Said another way, exposure to 6% acetic acid, just slightly more concentrated than supermarket vinegar, for 30 minutes, reduced the numbers of TB mycobacteria from around 100 million to undetectable levels.
During a sabbatical in Laurent Kremer's laboratory at the University of Montpellier 2 in France, Taki tested how effective acetic acid was against M. abscessus, one of the most resistant and pathogenic of the non-TB mycobacteria.
M. abscessus required exposure to a stronger 10% acetic acid solution for 30 minutes to be effectively eliminated. The team also tested the activity under biologically 'dirty' conditions similar to those encountered in clinical situations, by adding albumin protein and red blood cells to the acetic acid and found it was still effective.
"There is a real need for less toxic and less expensive disinfectants that can eliminate TB and non-TB mycobacteria, especially in resource-poor countries," says Taki. He notes that even a 25% solution of acetic acid is only a minor irritant and around US$100 can buy enough acetic acid to disinfect up to 20 liters of TB cultures or clinical samples.
"For now this is simply an interesting observation. Vinegar has been used for thousands of years as a common disinfectant and we merely extended studies from the early 20th century on acetic acid," concludes Taki. "Whether it could be useful in the clinic or mycobacteriology labs for sterilizing medical equipment or disinfecting cultures or clinical specimens remains to be determined."

Mycobacteria definition

Medical Definition of Mycobacterium
Privacy & Trust Info

Mycobacterium: A large family of bacteria that have unusually waxy cell walls that are resistant to digestion.

The mycobacteria includes:

Mycobacterium avium -- which causes tuberculosis-like illness in birds and immunodeficient people;
Mycobacterium leprae -- which causes leprosy;
Mycobacterium marinum -- which causes swimming pool granuloma;
Mycobacterium tuberculosis -- which causes tuberculosis; and
Mycobacterium ulcerans -- which causes Buruli ulcer.
The mycobacteria are acid-fast rod-shaped bacteria. They are usually slow-growing. Many are intracellular parasites.

Years ago on the town Hall I had posted excerpts from some very old writings on people who survived the bubonic plague - although they were in and out of home where the plague had killed people, were hauling bodies etc. I will try to find that old post and the link reference.

The point is certain habits were common to the survivors of plague. They covered their heads and mouths.
Under the nose and mouth covering they had garlic.
They sprinkled vinegar all over themselves and everywhere they went. They are garlic and (I think) they drank vinegar too.

Vinegar needs to be stored in survival groups supplies. I have no idea how long the usual type of plastic container with vinegar would last. The more expensive, natural vinegar comes in glass bottles.
