Paint Your Poison
Seattle cancer researchers are hoping that they will be able to use scorpion venom to fight deadly brain cancer through a new product called “Tumor Paint.” Jeff and Anthony consider the challenges of attacking cancer in the most sensitive areas of the human body and hope something deadly can combat something deadlier. Also, they remember their short-lived cartoon series, Cancer Killers: Tumor Squad.
