Panda Blood Could Be Used to Fight Bacteria [VIDEO]
Not only are Pandas cute but they also have a natural antibiotic that benefits humans in their blood.
In a recent report, researchers found cathelicidin-AM, a natural antibiotic that can help fight antibiotic-resistant bacteria. This antimicrobial peptide has also been found in snails and some amphibians but only panda blood has been effective in killing bacteria six times faster than some common antibiotics. Researchers are hoping to figure out a way to use panda blood as a antiseptic or in antibiotic treatments.
Only 1,600 panda are left in our world so I hope this study doesn’t cause a problem for these adorable animals. All this science talk just leaves me brain dead, so this calls for a video of pandas playing on their custom built playground and climbing trees!
