Vampire Bat Bites Help Shield Peruvians from Rabies


Rabies has been thought of as virtually 100-percent fatal unless treated immediately, but new research shows that a small number of isolated Peruvians have natural immunity from the animal-transmitted disease.

Researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that one in 15 people living in the remote Amazonian region in Peru were protected without medical intervention against the virus that kills more than 55,000 people globally every year.

Their trick: Vampire bats exposed the remote Peruvians to enough of the rabies virus to confer resistance, but not enough to kill them.


Crazy thought, lets all go get bit by vampire bats.

You first!!

On a more serious note, I think it pays people to immerse themselves in their environment, to gain immunity from the many things out there. No wonder so many people have allergies in our modern world.
