It displeases me that this research in being done in China. I think this is a negative reflection on our drug industry. It seems in the US we have a bias for chemicals, not nature?

One of my grandchildren carries Mercia (sp?) and I would be very happy if this would resolve that problem.

I'm rather gratified to read that the headline writer shied away from telling us that this could spawn a whole new family of drugs! (Sorry)

But fancy having to strain out the amphibian poo before you can make your bedtime cocoa - Not sure about that!

I heard this over the radio the other day, apparently in medieval/ancient times they believed to place a frog in their bucket of milk would keep it from spoiling. Now we're finding out the bacteria produced from one can do such a thing.. it amazes me how smart some people from so long ago without modern technology to help them through their studies could be.

More and more they are finding. Wisdom in the old ways.

yup, people, in general, are smart.. i guess, and observant . Someone noticed that the milk with the frog found in the bottom stayed fresh longer than usual?

so... they tried it again and it still worked !*

Observation, experiments and thought experiments are foundations of our science.

I could only imagine bitter-not-so-sweet? lol

I'd like to believe dead for the frogs sake. However though, I don't know if the bacteria needed to keep the milk from spoiling may be produced, even after the frog has deceased.. nonetheless; this topic really interests me.

As in water, I'm sure they would keep their head above the surface, and float about. Assuming they didn't kill the frog beforehand, but now the more I think of it; frog guts with milk seems a bit unlikely, even for them. xD

Well most of us eat bee vomit and some people frogs legs and tequila has a moth lava so I suppose a frog in milk is okay. :su
