Bee sting venom destroys HIV

Gel could be developed from chemical to destroy deadly virus
Quote:Doctors have sensationally claimed chemicals found in bee stings could help prevent the spread of HIV. Toxins in the insects' venom can destroy the virus and leave surrounding cells unharmed, it has been found. Scientists are excited by the find and believe it could be an important step towards developing a gel to stem the rampant spread of HIV, which causes Aids. The bees' chemical, melittin, destroys the HIV virus by puncturing its protective outer layer. Scientists inserted the toxin into tiny nanoparticles, which are fitted with special 'bumpers' so they can bounce off normal cells.

Hmmm, why did they feel compelled to refer to it as a "vaginal gel"? They do know everyone will be using it, not just the heterosexuals. Maybe I'm reading too much into their choice of words...

Hey, HIV-free sex is a great motivator for researching colony collapse disorder.

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.

RE: Bee sting venom destroys HIV
Well, it seems this is true. Another, better explained article about bees and HIV:
http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/visual...UfOdVuSjop


Quote: The antiviral therapy has implications for areas rampant with HIV, to be used by women in a vaginal preventative gel that prevents the initial infection. Treatments could also be developed for drug-resistant HIV infections, to be delivered intravenously and potentially clear the blood of the infection. There is also the possibility for this treatment being useful for couples in which one member is HIV-positive but who want to have a baby together.
Again, they only mention the possibilities as a "vaginal gel". I guess is more politically correct to say "vaginal gel" than "anal sex".

Anyway, this is good news.
