Scientists often tell us influenza starts in chickens and pigs. But now the cure could also come from the animal kingdom: frog slime!
Researchers at Emory Vaccine Center say there's a compound in the skin secretions of the South Indian Frog that may be able to kill the flu.
It's called urumin, and it disrupts the stability of the H-1 strain of the flu virus.
The slime has already been proven to work in mice, and researchers think it could be an option for humans when vaccines aren't available.
