Mice turn tasters

Bangkok, Oct. 3 (Reuters): Thailand is going to use mice to test food for poison before it is served to President George W. Bush and 20 other Asia Pacific leaders at a regional summit in Bangkok this month, a top health official said today.

Department of medical sciences chief Somsong Rugpao said samples of dishes served at the October 20-21 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit would be injected into mice. Well have a result within a minute. If its safe, well tell waiters to start serving, he said.
