The Seven Per Cent Solution

http://www.cnn.com/2006/HEALTH/conditions/01/18/cf.saltwater/index.html

Researchers have discovered that inhaling a fine mist of saltwater (7% saline) produces great benefits to cystic fibrosis patients. Apparently it cuts their rate of hospitalization nearly in half by lubricating the mucous membranes inside the lung. Imagine, something as simple as saltwater!

For those who don't know, my littlest cousin has CF, so whenever a new treatment comes up in the news, I get ecstatic.
