Oh great! Another animal poised for exploitation.
Using real honey bees venom to slightly alleviate arthritis. The article I just watched showed using live bees to sting multiple spots on the body. This is a terrible conclusion as honey bees are important for the
pollinating all kinds of plants that are equally or more important to
all of humankind such as food harvests.
Not to mention the
already constant declining of bees due to humans fouling up their
habitat. Since a honey bee can usually sting humans only once before
dieing. How many value bees will die to momentarily alleviate pain
before scientist wise up and make a synthetic version. Probably when its
too late and all the bees are gone.
One more case of humans
upsetting the balance for self benefit. I am not against humans feeling
better or living longer or living healthier but not at the costs of thousands or millions of lives (insert
any endangered or extinct species here)
