Denim beats venom

In the southern hemisphere summer many will feel the urge to frolic in bushland. This is a wonderful thing but it can also bring you face to fang with some of our serpentine friends. Now research has suggested that you might be best off to be wearing jeans should such a brief encounter occur. This advice has nothing to do with the reptile’s fashion sense and everything to do with being protected. The researchers simulated a human limb with latex gloves filled with saline. Some of the “limbs” were covered in a layer of denim and then all of the limbs were exposed to bites from rattlesnakes. Those limbs covered in denim absorbed 66 per cent less venom. Globally, 100 000 people die from snake bite each year. So you might want to replace those cool shorts with some denim next bushwalk. It’s a simple strategy; jean-ius really.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
