Doctors have sensationally claimed chemicals found in bee stings could help prevent the spread of HIV.

Toxins in the insects' venom can destroy the virus and leave surrounding cells unharmed, it has been found.

Scientists are excited by the find and believe it could be an important step towards developing a gel to stem the rampant spread of HIV, which causes Aids.
