New nail polish will help detect the date rape drug

A company has developed a way to help keep women and men safe from the date rape drug.

They've created a nail polish that is designed to detect the date rape drug by changing color if one's drink has been contaminated.

The company, Undercover Colors, was created by four men from North Carolina State University who have the goal of helping to reduce the prevalence of date rape and bring awareness to this prevalence.

Rape statistics show that one in six women are sexually assaulted in their lifetime.

This initiative is one way people are trying to make that reality a thing of the past.
