The BBC has an intriguing story of a woman, wracked with and dying from Lyme disease, and terribly allergic to bee stings, whose life was saved by a massive attack of Africanized bees. In a dramatic example of a phenomenon which defies expectation, she was completely cured of the Lyme disease and she had no resulting anaphylaxis. Hers is but one example of how natural toxins are being found to be potent weapons against human pathologies. http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20150327-how-a-bee-sting-saved-my-life
