Opossum protein neutralizes nearly all poisons, could have benefits for humans | The Sideshow – Yahoo! News
American Opossums possess a protein call LTNF (Lethal Toxin Neutralizing Factor) which quickly seeks out toxic poisons that enter an opossums’ bdy and renders them harmless. It is pretty amazing stuff, especially when one considers that it even protects opossums from venomous snakes from other continents, to which the opossum has never been exposed.
LTNF protein works on everything from snake venom to ricin.
Strangely, this study was published in 1999, yet it only now is making the rounds. I wonder if it would help us with environmental toxins.
