|Is Hornet Juice the Next Big Thing?||Me Dot Org|

|Naoko Takahashi, the first woman to run a marathon in under 2:20:00, has been drinking hornet juice for FIVE YEARS and swears by it.
To quote the Reuters article:
i Japanese scientists have found the juice can give an
i astonishing boost to human performance.
i They said it reduced muscle fatigue and improved the
i body's efficiency by increasing the ability to metabolize i fat and thus reduce the build up of lactic acid.
i Because it is 100 percent natural, it does not break
i rules on performance-enhancing drugs.

|I read a similar article almost two years ago. Supposedly a British company was involved in patent |
and marketing negotiations with the Japanese group who did the original clinical research. However
I hadn't heard anything since. As I understand it, a number of Japanese runners use the stuff and
swear by it. However, the Japanese are not yet knocking off the African like flies. So I guess we'll
all have to wait and see.

|Hornets don't like that very much. It's so hard to get them to sit still. You'll get more juice out of bumblebees, anyway.
Maybe this woman ran such a fast marathon because she was whacked out of her skull. Or trying to find a quiet place to throw up.
Who discovers stuff like this? How many different insects did they "juice" before they stumbled on the magical hornet?

|Those guys PISS ME OFF! They're right up there past saddle sores as far as I'm concerned.
I'd go for that corn juice the Tarahumara indians drink on their multi-day runs in the Andes.
That and a cuouple of Coca leaves!
