We've got good news and bad news. The good news: The U.S. government is looking for volunteers to make $3,000 for nine days of just hangin' out. The bad news: You have to let them infect you with SWINE FLU.
The National Institutes of Health is in the middle of a massive clinical research study to try to find a cure for the flu . . . and they're at the point where they need to test it on humans.
So they need volunteers who are willing to be infected with the flu . . . then monitored carefully at a hospital for nine days.
They're testing it with all different forms of the flu . . . from regular, old influenza to H1N1 swine flu.
If you're interested in letting the government give you a virus for $3,000, you can apply online. Just Google "NIAID Influenza Clinical Research Studies." Or call 1-800-411-1222. (Today / NIH)
