Today I’ll offer you a nice distraction from all the Washington DC immanent news about debt defaults.
Also in the more obscure but interesting realm: AU library has a movie called “Bee Lady of Waldorf,” which is about how Bee Venom Therapy (BVT) may be used in treating Muliple Sclerosis. (The call number is VHS 7277, for readers of this blog from the AU community.) It looks quite interesting, as it tells the story of someone local named Pat Wagner, who lives in Waldorf, MD, and is an outspoken proponent of the miracle cure of apitherapy. Apitherapy has also been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for quite some time – follow that link and you’ll get engrossed in a whole host of information on bee products and their relation to cures for cancer, and more.
