Llama Blood Could Eliminate The Need For Yearly Flu Shots

 

Did you know that llama blood was this magical?! So magical that it could eliminate the need for yearly flu shots?! This comes from an article from Mental Floss!

"According to a new paper published in the journal Science, the tiny antibodies produced by llamas are better equipped to fight the influenza virus than the larger ones found in humans. When the flu virus enters your body, specialized white blood cells called B lymphocytes make antibodies to attack it."

So why llama blood of all things?! Well because their antibodies are smaller than ours that can reach the "core of an influenza virus". 

If this is the one this prevents me from getting the flu, I will try it! Would you?!
