Hornets for Your Health

Want to run faster? Then why not try eating hornets. Even better, giant killer hornets. That's right - grab one, kill it and suck out its stomach guts.

Sound crazy? Well, the stomach juice of Giant Hornets can actually improve your body's efficiency and stop your muscles from getting tired. Naoko Takahashi definitely got an extra buzz from the juice. She drank this strange drink before and during the Olympic marathon in Sydney - and she went on to win the race!

Japanese scientists discovered that the stomach juice of Giant Hornets helps them fly more than 50 miles in search of food. And it has a similar effect on humans. The scientists persuaded Naoko to try the drink - after chugging the brew, she became the first Japanese woman to win a gold medal in running!
