MacGyver Science: Golden Lancehead + Venom + Pole vault + Blood + Baggage
I’ll be honest — there’s a lot of biochemistry in this one and I’m just a physicist.
Could Snake Venom Be Used for Cancer Treatment?
This is really the key point in this episode. MacGyver is collecting snake venom (with his DIY jar and plastic membrane) to be used for research. So, is this even legit?
Yes — it’s true that snake venom can be used in medicine. It’s really crazy if you think about it. Something that is normally dangerous can be used to heal.
