Benefits of Venom and Why Snakes Should Live

If you think the best way to deal with venomous snakes is to kill them, then consider this information I've found, all from a National Geographic Kids magazine (issue August 2012, pages 16 - 17)

Copperhead Venom. Used to treat: Breast Cancer.
Western Rattlesnake Venom. Used to treat: Heart Attacks.
Gaboon Viper Venom. Used to treat: Strokes.
Brazilian Pit Viper Venom. Used to treat: High Blood Pressure.
Indian Cobra Venom. Used to treat: Arthritis.
King Cobra Venom. Used to treat: Neurological Conditions.
African Saw-Scaled Viper Venom. Used to treat: Heart Attacks.

Before you take that snake's life, pause to think how he could save yours.
