1. Hookworm larvae are to be injected into coeliacs in bid to treat gluten intolerance –
James Cook University Australia, doctors John Croese and Paul Giacomin hope to find a drug derived from the parasites to treat gluten intolerance.
The larvae are put under a bandage, they burrow into the patients’ skin to make their way into their intestines.Hookworms do not breed within the human body so there is no chance of the parasite multiplying to dangerous numbers.
Results: Some Participant in the trial ate pizza for the first time in 15 years.
The future of worm therapy is likely to involve the manufacture of synthetic versions of these worm proteins in the laboratory in the hope that eventually they could become a pill-based medication to treat a variety of inflammatory diseases, including coeliac disease.

If you’ve ever worked for a boss who reacts before getting the facts and thinking things through, you will love this
Arcelor-Mittal Steel, feeling it was time for a shakeup, hired a new CEO. The new boss was determined to rid the company of all slackers.
On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a guy leaning against a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business. He asked the guy, “How much money do you make a week?”
A little surprised, the young man looked at him and said, “I make £250 a week. Why?”
The CEO said, “Wait right here.” He walked back to his office, came back in two minutes, and handed the guy £1,000 in cash and said, “Here’s four weeks’ pay. Now GET OUT and don’t come back.”
Feeling pretty good about himself the CEO looked around the room and asked, “Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball did here?”
From across the room a voice said, “Pizza delivery guy from Domino’s.”
This is a brilliant way to enjoy Pizza.

Couldn’t Hear » Even though Beethoven is one of the great composers in the world, he began to lose his hearing when he was 30. When his Symphony No. 9, Op 125 premiered, friends had to turn Beethoven around to see the audience because he could not hear them clapping.
Big Breath » Take a big breath. As a human, the average time you can hold it is one minute. But, if you were a muskrat, you could hold it for 12 minutes, and if you were a beaver, you would last 20 minutes. A sperm whale can hold its breath for 90 minutes.
