How much would someone have to pay you to “drink” a virus?

The Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX,  is conducting a study where it asks participants to get sick on purpose.

It’s all about studying the norovirus, which causes diarrhea and vomiting, and a new potential vaccine that researchers hope will prevent diarrhea.

After drinking the virus and spending a week in the hospital, volunteers get paid almost $1,000.

Half of the participants will get a vaccine and the other half gets a placebo.

Vomiiting and Diarrhea for $1,000?  hmmmmmm?
