A new life at 67.Can a woman start all over again?

Lick It

No need to worry anymore if there is no disinfectant around when you cut yourself.

Just lick it.

Laboratory tests in Holland have shown that a certain protein called Histatin which is present in saliva, besides having an antibacterial effect, also accelerates the healing process.

The Dutch scientists hope that from their new knowledge better treatment can be found for chronic wounds and burns.

So when you next tell a child who has cut themselves to “lick it better”,you can now be sure it will help.

  1. I don’t know about this one. Saliva also contains a LOT of bacteria, so I can’t imagine this being very healthy.

    On the other hand, animals have been licking their wounds for millions of years, so maybe there’s something to it. Of course, it’s probably a good idea to only lick your own wound. I don’t think letting someone else lick it is a very good idea. 😉

  2. It certainly could lead to complications !
