In Japan, the swine flu has spread rather quickly. It has become such a major concern that many people walk around with face masks on. And now a textiles company is producing a suit that is resistant to the disease. The swine flu is also known as H1N1 influenza. The company behind the swine flu resistant suit is the Haruyama Trading Company. The suit is covered with titanium dioxide which reacts in sunlight and kills off the virus if it is exposed. The suit is available in Japan and retails for about the equivalent of $580.
