Scientists have discovered that snake venom can kill breast and colorectal cancer tumors. They expect the toxin to contain about 100 different chemicals could provide new hope for cancer treatments.

Early studies show that snake venom can destroy cancer tumors "really fast". This is an interesting discovery by a group of scientists at Northern Colorado University (USA), according to the Daily Mail.

However, because of the toxicity of snake venom, finding a remedy that can effectively kill cancer but not kill patients is difficult, scientists admit.
To find a cure for cancer, they tested hundreds of different types of snake venom in laboratory studies, from rattlesnakes to green snakes.

Cancer is one of the most deadly diseases in the world. Therefore, the creation of a new drug is being studied by many scientists around the world.

Snake venom is highly toxic, just one bite is enough to kill the prey. However, in many countries, snake venom has been a folk remedy for centuries. Snake venom has also been the subject of scientists' research because they contain a lot of proteins and natural chemicals, according to the Daily Mail.
The research results show that the venom of different snakes can attack human cancer cells in different ways. Dr. Stephen Mackessy, one of the study authors at Northern Colorado University, said.

In the laboratory, a small amount of rattlesnake venom can also quickly destroy breast and colorectal cancer cells.
However, it has no effect on melanoma, a serious skin cancer. Meanwhile, the venom of some other snakes can kill melanoma, the researchers said.
The cancer cells were collected from the patient by the team and grown in a laboratory.

The team hopes to one day be able to clinically test a new cancer drug in humans. One of the toughest jobs is finding a safe dose of venom, according to the Daily Mail.
