The Healing Power of Mayonaise

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...


Israel is trying to clean up a disastrous oil spill and thousands of volunteers are trying to rescue wildlife. Turtles that have been doused in oil are being treated with mayonnaise of all things.

Mayonnaise can dilute and remove the oil from the turtles’ digestive tracts. Volunteers have also used vegetable oil to remove the tar-like oil from the turtles’ bodies. After two weeks of mayo-med, they are expected to be returned to the wild. Hopefully, they will have some wild to return to by then.
