Cobra's venom is a painkiller!

French researchers have discovered that venom of most poisonous snakes on earth is the best painkiller.  Having examined in depth the properties of venom samples of 50 different type of poisonous snakes, scientists found that pain-killing proteins extracted from Black Mamba, one of the world's deadliest snakes, is as powerful as morphine.  Mamba's venom has a medical name mambalgins.

While the most poisonous snake is so useful to mankind, it is high time we drop the stigma attached to these roving reptiles and protect & preserve them in a fitting manner.

  1. Very interesting, but I'm afraid of snakes. I won't mess with them, but I'm afraid of them.

    Have a terrific day. :)
