This is pretty amazing! Bees are amazing!

Nanoparticles carrying a toxin found in bee venom can destroy human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) while leaving surrounding cells unharmed, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have shown.

An older study supported by the National Cancer Institute showed that similar nanoparticles were effective against tumours in mice - http://www.cancer.gov/aboutnci/servi...ances/nanobees
