When you think of contraception, you probably don't relate it to sushi (unless you're having cravings - thanks period).
What comes to mind is either those pesky lil pills or an IUD, but scientists have out scienced themselves and discovered some hidden talents in ~seaweed~.
'Sticky beads', or artificial eggs, are the newest development in contraception which are made from the sugary material extracted from seaweed.
Help I don't talk science...
Basically the sticky beads trap sperm, preventing pregnancy. YAY!
Experts have called the design "very impressive" and we can see why as it will offer a form of contraception that doesn't cause mood swings, weight gain and other side effects like the pill can.
Who doesn't want to use a contraception that is kinda sorta linked to mermaids anyway?
