Cream May Repel Sting of Jellyfish
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep, with an opportunity for those who can take the pain.
Norwegian researchers are testing a new sunscreen. They want it to protect against the sting of jellyfish so they're asking for volunteers to see if it works. All you have to do is agree to let a jellyfish give you a toxic sting in each arm — one with the special cream and one without. Hopefully it works, since the reward for volunteering is three free bottles of the sunscreen.
It's MORNING EDITION.
