"Teen's discovery could save millions of lives"

From CNN's 360 Blog:

"For years, scientists have been working to find what can kill E. coli. Well, finally, someone found it. It turns out there is a good bacteria in yogurt that secretes a protein that kills E. coli. We know this now because a very smart, hard-working researcher discovered the ripe old age of 13. "Serena Fasano, now 16 years old, earned a patent recently on her discovery, so we thought we'd interview her on '360.' We learned Serena has spent countless hours of her free time in a lab and that she's very, very bright. She's also a normal high school kid with lots of friends. Yet, this 'normal' kid's after-school activities could soon save the lives of millions of children."
