Saturday’s “Pure Opelka” on TheBlaze Radio Network featured host Mike Opelka sharing the news of a potential medical miracle found in frog mucus.

A recently published scientific study claims the slimy stuff on the skin of a frog found in India may hold the key to fighting off H1 influenza, one of the most common types of the flu.

Opelka reported Emory University’s research showed mice treated with the frog mucus recovered from what should have been a fatal dose of the flu.
