#PickYourNose to Fight #Flu

African clawed frogDie-hard nose-pickers will swear that there’s science backing their unsightly handsy habit. However, to their defense, researchers are looking into the possibility of using mucus to develop the next flu drug. Good news….or bad new, depending on how you feel about the aforementioned thought. The mucus for the drug is proposed to be frog mucus. But it’s a step in the right direction if it can help minimize an illness that kills more than half a million people worldwide every year. The slimy substance designed to protect the frogs skin is quite possibly the anti-viral medication that will protect and combat influenza among humans. See!!? Frogs have a purpose to serve mankind, after all!
