Sometimes we find the cure for disease where we'd least expect it. In this case. *geese* could hold the key to treating everything from Malaria to rabies.

Researchers found that geese can rapidly produce the antibodies needed to create serums to treated people for West Nile Disease. But, what's most amazing, researchers found that geese can be used to produce serums to treat all kinds of disease.

Researchers introduce the dead virus of any given disease to a goose. The goose quickly produces an antibody to that disease, which is extracted from its egg yolk and used to create the serum to treat that disease. All of this still depends on approval for human use by the FDA.
