Their endangered status and distinctive, cuddly appearance has turned them into the poster-child of wildlife conservation, but now there may be a new reason to save the giant panda from extinction.

Scientists have discovered that the animals, of which there are around 1,600 in the wild, produce a powerful antibiotic in their blood stream that kills bacteria and fungi.

I saw a Panda take on more than a bug,it beat a Tiger senseless with some slick Kung Fu moves so i know the bug is history

nature has all the answers and cures to all human problems as in for deseases and i mean natural cures from mother nature herself.instead were being bombarded with these artificial drugs by these drug companies that have all these side effects and etc which in reality do more harm than good sure they help us with out current problem but what about later???be respectful to mother nature and with the animals of nature they might have cures and etc but they are lab rats or experiments.were not above mother nature guys or stronger nature has shown us that.are ignorant are we humans. i'm glad about that though the discovery i am really.nature is impressive always so are all animals!!
