The cone snail brings forth a solution to neuropathic pain, with its venom that acts as a super-morphine for disease-inflicted individuals.

Diabetes, multiple sclerosis, cancer, and HIV, are among the diseases that feature neuropathic pain, "mind pain", which is a great deal more difficult to treat. Only one-in-three patients are said to experience relief from current treatments, such as antidepressants, opiods, or pot. Not even surgery is said to take care of the pain in it's entirety, but now, this pain-relieving species can do the trick naturally.

The common cone snail produces a venom that functions as a pain reliever 100 times as powerful as morphine, according to 247th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society.

This natural solution found in the common cone snail is deemed to be a genuine advancement in the medical world. Stats for Pain-Relieving Species Trending: Older & Chilly
