Eating Pizza Could Keep You From Getting That Horrible Norovirus

There's been a lot of talk about NOROVIRUS lately . . . at least since entire cruise ships full of people started getting infected with it.


If you don't know, norovirus is a VERY contagious disease that can cause horrible vomiting and diarrhea.


So here's some good news:  Scientists at the University of Arizona think they've found a way to help prevent norovirus from infecting you.  And it sounds like just about the EASIEST medical advice to follow EVER.




The team found that a chemical in oregano oil called carvacrol can help prevent norovirus from spreading.  Oregano oil is used to give pizza its flavor and smell.


So before you go on a cruise, eat pizza.  Lots and lots of pizza.  I think you can handle that.
