An ointment that instantly stops bleeding can save so many lives; that's why Veti-Gel by Joe Landolina, a 20-year-old New York University student, is making such a commotion. If this medical development is all that it is promised to be, commercials for blood donations may soon cease to exist. Landolina states, "There's really no way to quickly stop bleeding except to hold lots of gauze on a wound. I thought if you could pour this gel into a wound, it would solidify and stop the bleeding."
