Hate Shots? Say Goodbye to the Needle

I don't know anyone who likes getting a shot, but I've got some good news to share with anyone who is needle phobic. In the future, you may not have to worry about the painful prick of vaccinations since a Japanese inventor recently created a needle-free injection. Instead of a sharp metal point, this injection method uses air pressure or gases to deliver the drugs. Aside from being fear inducing, needles are less than an optimal method because not only do they hurt; they also create a ton of medical waste. Also, needles are sometimes reused in developing countries, which increases the risk for diseases to spread.

This new injection method will be simpler to use than conventional shots, will cut down on medical waste, and prevent the spread of disease. Seems like a win, win, win situation to me. Plus it has a much nicer name — Mother's Kiss. Sounds a lot more appealing than "shot," don't you think.
