Could Bedbugs Actually Be Useful?
A common home pest may prove to be the key for treating a deadly, incurable disease.
Bedbugs, those creepy little pests that crawl and bite, may not be so bad after all. While it is known that bedbugs are relatively harmless and do not transmit disease, new research by South African scientists has shown that bedbugs can even kill the AIDS virus. In an experiment, the bugs were fed blood containing the virus and it was found that it died soon after, suggesting that bedbugs may contain a cure for the disease.
