In the same show I seen discussing the use of Southern Copperhead venom to fight cancer there was also mention of the use of scorpion venom to help fight brain cancer. In the show they interviewed a young man and his mother, the son who had the treatment for brain cancer and was a survivor thanks to the use of scorpion venom that attacked his brain cancer.
Cuban scientists have verified that the toxin in the venom of the Rophalorus junceus scorpion has an analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-tumoral effect.

This website is dedicated solely to the use of scorpion venom to fight cancer.
Because this natural and alternative cancer treatment based on the blue scorpion venom, , has achieved amazing results without causing the side effects of conventional treatments.
"Right now it is difficult for a surgeon to be able to distinguish a brain tumor from the normal brain tissue around it," says Dr. James Olson of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. He says that this situation often presents today's brain surgeon with an unenviable decision: choose either to cut aggressively, potentially damaging healthy brain tissue, or cut conservatively and run the risk of leaving tumor cells behind.
Enter T-601, the synthetic version of a chemical first found in the scorpion's sting.
For the scorpion, this property if its venom ensures a quick kill of its unfortunate prey. But subtract the poisonous components from the venom, and you have a perfect vehicle for penetrating the brain.
What's more, researchers have found that this chemical seeks out and binds to brain tumor cells.
If it is deemed that radiation must be used why not use it in a way that has better effects or better yet less adverse effects on the patient.
Patients could safely return home several hours after the procedure, according to Jackson, and their families would be exposed to no more radiation than is typical with a thyroid cancer patient going home after treatment. Patients showed no evidence of adverse reactions, Jackson reports, adding that 54 patients nationwide are currently in investigational trials for the therapy.
Yes there is proof it works. Research has been done. It is working in the labs and has worked when tried on humans. Why do we keep holding back? Why do why give people treatments that make them suffer as much if not more than the cancer itself?
Niurys Monzon, 28, says she is a living proof that it works."I was eleven when I was diagnosed," she said, "and started taking Escozul when I was fifteen."
Her father, Jose Felipe Monzon told CNN that in 1992 her cancer of the pancreas had spread despite two years of chemotherapy, radiation treatment and three operations and that doctors had given up.
In desperation, he turned to a man named Misael Bordier, a biologist from Guantanamo who was experimenting with scorpion venom on cancerous tumors in rats and dogs.
The risk in using these forms of treatment is far less than the traditional uses.
Duane has a malignant glioma, a brain tumor that kills 98% of those who get it. After surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy failed, Duane learned of a new treatment using scorpion venom.
So far, 8 patients have undergone the experimental treatment at City of Hope and the University of Alabama in Birmingham. All but one of the patients are still alive.
The information is out there. Some has even been reported on mainstream media. The research is more than done; this stuff has been tested and proven to work on humans. Why are we not using it all the time now? Is it because the pharmaceutical companies are trying to keep it under wraps so that they can make more profit? In my opinion that is why.
Look at the number of commercials that come on now saying that if you used this drug and suffered this to call these lawyers. Look at all the side effects of drugs you see advertised today. The drugs themselves are most likely worse for you than the reason you are taking them. Look to those who are suffering cancer now. Most of them seem to feel worse once the treatments begin. It tears down the body; it makes them weak and vulnerable to sickness.
Cancer can be cured without the traditional treatments. There has to be some way to get this stuff out there so that more people are demanding better more efficient treatments be used.
