    It has been reported that Snake Venom Protein Paralyzes Cancer Cells, while another report from CNN said that, "Bee, scorpion and snake venom may hold cancer cure." Do you think that is true, and has this been tested on humans? Lets hear your opinion on what you have to say.


    The work is in very early stages, but has shown success in stopping breast cancer and melanoma cell growth in lab tests. Pan's technique uses nanotechnology to deliver a synthesized element similar to the venom found in bees, snakes and scorpions.

    Ancient texts reveal that doctors have used venom to treat aliments for years. In 14 BC, the Greek writer Pliny the Elder described the use of bee venom as a cure for baldness. Doctors used bee stings to treat the Emperor Charlemagne's gout in the 700s. Traditional Chinese medicine has used frog venom to fight liver, lung, colon and pancreatic cancers.

    Alternatively, doctors in Cuba have used scorpion venom to fight brain tumors. You can continue reading from here: http://edition.cnn.com/2014/08/12/health/venom-nanotechnology-cancer/
