Very interesting sweat. If the sweat is anti-bug and anti-biotic then maybe it is anti-carcinogenic as well and can be used to treat cancers . Just wondering do these hippos get infected by viruses like hepatitis or hiv. I think except primates all other animals are immune to hiv mabe because of the chemicals in the sweat these animals they produce.

Wow good question. I will be honest and say that I do not know the answer to that. You raise a good point… any one else know?

Having a dear friend who was recently diagnosed with skin cancer, this is a GREAT and very relavent article! Truly, I don’t think anyone would care if their skin color changed if they could ward off skin cancer and infection(…and flies, which is just an extra!)
What an amazing S. African product that could absolutely help the entire world!! Thanks Adam!
