For obvious reasons, this one made me chuckle:
Snake venom can kill breast and colon cancer tumours really quickly, scientists claim.
As I see it, while snake venom may well be able to kill various cancerous growths in the human body, the problem will be to stop it from killing the rest of the body once it’s done its number on the cancer.
As they admit:
Scientists admit directing the venom to only destroy cancer cells without being fatal to humans will be a challenge.
The team hopes to one day move forward into clinical studies with humans, but they have a lot of work to do to find the right dose.
“Clinical studies”… uh huh. Dr. Mengele, call your office.
