London: Bee venom shots could kill backaches by reducing inflammation, says a British study.The therapy is rooted in ancient traditional remedies, where bee stings were used to tackle a wide range of ailments. But it can be an effective tool in modern medicine, too, according to a number of studies.An analysis of studies by University of Exeter researchers found bee venom contained compounds that may ease joint pain. Another trial, conducted by the University of North Carolina, investigated the effect of bee venom on back and leg pain.Researchers found that it reduced pain by up to two-thirds, but because other treatments were used in the study, it was difficult to pinpoint precisely how much effect the bee venom itself had, the Daily Mail reports.
