Doctors have discovered a possible cure for the flu and common cold. Methamphetamine.

Researchers in Taiwan have found the illegal drug, which can kill brain cells and weaken your heart, can also lower the amount of flu virus in your body and help you get over the illness faster.

However, doctors aren’t recommending you take methamphetamine to get over the flu.

They said they believe their research could help them find safer, legal compounds that could be used as treatments.
