A Japanese company, Haruyama Trading Co., has developed a suit that it claims protects the wearer from the deadly H1N1 strain of influenza.
The company has produced 50,000 of the suits and will start selling them on Thursday, according to a company spokesman.

Ummm.....nice suit, kinda. But isn't Titanium Dioxide one of the ingredients in suntan lotion? Why not wear some of that instead? T'would be cheaper.
