Venomous snakes and lizards may be a 'whole new source' for drug discovery, say researchers. Though venom has already been used to create drugs, the chemicals in it are often too deadly for human consumption. But a new study found snakes and lizards have "reclaimed" some toxins and used them, safely, elsewhere in their own bodies, and scientists think it could be used to make safe and effective drugs.
