Scientists from the University of Illinois think venom may be one way to stop cancer cell growth.
The technique uses the venom from bees, snakes and scorpions, similar to how ancient doctors treated ailments.
Although venom can hurt all cells, in theory, this technique only targets cancer cells.
Work is still in its early stages, but it has been success in stopping breast cancer and melanoma cell growth in lab tests.
