There is nothing to ruin a person's week like a bout of food poisoning, especially after they've spent money to go on an exotic vacation. Although technology to prevent this kind of suffering seems to be lacking, relief may be on the way.

Dr. David Bundle, from the University of Alberta, thinks he may have found a new treatment to prevent bacteria from seriously affecting your body. The drug uses cutting edge nano-technology to destroy the invading bacteria before it can cause serious harm. The drug is still in the early testing phase, but it is a very positive step in conquering E.Coli and other such poisonings.
