They call this ‘intelligent chicken feed.’ They have built ‘nanoparticles that mimic the host cell surface and lock to targeted pathogens. The particles then bind together and are purged through the digestive system.’ Personally, I have some doubts about this patented invention when it becomes commercially available.
