Can cockroaches save us from a new generation of diseases

Some British scientists believe that cockroaches could hold the key to producing antibiotics for humans to combat the new generation of illnesses. Cockroaches are known to be one of the hardiest creatures around so you never know. Very exciting stuff.

I accept and even like a lot of bugs that people hate. But when cockroaches get in my path I say STOP!!! I loathe them, they are ugly and full of germs. If they have something good to give to mankind, I´m glad. My sister, who is a scientist, spent about 6 months of her life working with cockroaches in Cambridge, England, for her PhD. I´d rather be illiterate than doing that. Happy posting and welcome to mylot!
