Bee Venom and cancer
« on: September 02, 2020, 07:05:44 pm »
Venom from honeybees rapidly destroyed triple-negative breast cancer, a type of cancer that has limited treatment options, and HER2-enriched breast cancer cells, according to a study published in the journal npj Precision Oncology.  Using the venom from over 300 honeybees and bumblebees in England, Ireland and Perth, Western Australia, Dr. Ciara Duffy from the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research and The University of Western Australia, tested the effect of the venom on the clinical subtypes of breast cancer, according to the news release.

Don't read the comments at the bottom of the article!  Amazing how quickly the conversation jumped to politics and crude jokes about women's anatomy.
