Bee Venom Could Be Cancer Cure

Many people avoid bees at all cost to avoid their painful stings. But according to a new study, bee venom could bring pleasure to researchers who are on a quest to find a cancer cure.

The study presented at the 248th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ASC) suggests bee, snake or scorpion venom could be used in cancer-fighting drugs without having a harmful effect on your health.

Injecting a person with pure venom could be very dangerous. It could cause blood clots, and more serious effects like damage to the heart and nerve cells. However, researchers found that separating the “useful” venom would not harm the body.

GMOs Don’t Offer Food Security

Tobacco-Derived Antibody Could Cure Ebola

While two Americans are fighting to survive the deadliest recorded outbreak of  Ebola, drug makers are using tobacco to find the cure.

Nancy Writhbol was flown from Liberia to Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital on Tuesday, just a few days after the first American Ebola patient, Dr. Kent Brantly, entered the isolation unit for treatment. Both Americans are missionaries on the Samaritan’s Purse-SIM team who caught the disease after taking care of those infected in Monrovia.

Tanning Causes Rise in Deadly Cancer

There is nothing more relaxing than laying out on the beach during the summer. The soothing sounds of the waves crashing to shore in your ears and the fiery sun crisping your bronze skin can be magical. The ultraviolet rays of the sun allow our bodies to naturally produce vitamin D. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium, promoting strong bones and teeth and preventing osteoporosis.

You may then decide to “lay in” a tanning bed to even out those tan lines, or to accelerate your tan. While spending time under the sun—or under the lamp— may be fun, it may also cost you your life.
