“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, man would have only four years to live. No more bees, no more pollination, no more men!” — Albert Einstein
Ever wonder what the big deal about bees is anyway? I mean we know they make honey which has incredible health benefits, but why are these little insects so important to our survival?
Formerly the reason why was primarily because they pollinate flowers which when spread allows other plants to reproduce and grow, and of course we eat the plants and so do the animals. In other words, if bees didn’t do this, our entire food chain would be thrust into chaos.
Now, there is another reason why, and it’s a revolutionary medical breakthrough that could change everything.
Scientists from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, have discovered that by poking holes in the protective envelope that surrounds the HIV virus, melittin – which is a toxin found in bee venom – literally kills the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). And it does this without any harmful side effects whatsoever!
This breakthrough is giving hope to millions across the globe. Last year, in 2015, nearly 40 million people were living with the lethal virus globally.
A research instructor in medicine at Washington University, named Dr Joshua L. Hood, explained the following;
Dr Joshua L. Hood says, this discovery has the potential to not only prevent and stop the HIV infection, but even cure existing infections!
Hood also hopes this will be beneficial for couples where one partner is infected, but the other is not;
The study was published in the journal Antiviral Therapy, and came after researchers from Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, the University of Mississippi Medical Center and the University Of Massachusetts Medical School reported that a Mississippi baby with HIV had literally been cured! This was done, just 30 hours after he received antiretroviral therapy!
More recently, researchers at Philadelphia’s Temple University employed CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing technology to expel the presence of HIV-1 DNA from the human genome. Then, when they reintroduced HIV to the edited genomes, the cells were no longer infected with the lethal virus! You can view their study HERE.
This is very exciting and makes you wonder what else Nature has waiting to be discovered!
