Honey bees are now being used to help detect cancer.
A researcher created a contraption which she says can detect cancer using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber which the patient exhales from.
If the bees fly into a secondary chamber that means the bees have detected the disease. She says the bees can be trained to smell the cancer in 10-minutes.
Honey bees have an excellent sense of smell which is better than a dog’s, and can also be trained to detect bombs.

A high school kid was out hunting when he had his rifle stolen by a beaver.
He was hunting deer in Bangor, Maine, when he had to go number 2. Since he lived right across the street from where his deer stand was, he leaned his rifle against a tree and left.
When he got back his gun was gone. He looked around everywhere and couldn’t find it.
He had to go number 1, so he walked towards a stream and saw a beaver taking his gun into the river.
It went underwater with the gun and was gone. The water was deep and the beaver went under, so as far as he was concerned, the gun was as good as gone.
Not everyone believes his tale, but he says it’s 100% true.
