WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Scientists are studying honeysuckle extract as an element in U-V protective clothing.

The extract could be used as a coating for such clothes to help block harmful U-V rays.

Researchers in China found wool coated with honeysuckle extract blocked U-V rays more effectively than untreated wool. The extract was effective even after the wool was washed.
