Can a bee really be in place of Acupuncture and could Scabies really be a cure for Cancer?

Siouxsie Wiles joins Graeme Hill for Skeptical Thoughts, the week’s woo, hoaxes and scams exposed.

Graeme wonders, is there actually a seat you carry along to outdoor events, with a big spike on the end of it... or is it a myth?!

On the Martha Stewart show, there was a conversation about Bee Therapy... but can a bee really work for acupuncture?

This 'Miracle Wonder' is using a bee's stinger, sticking it in an acupuncture point and viola, apparently it makes all your pain go away (apart from the Bee, who's now dead).

A third of all participants had a bad reaction, and one patient had the treatment every month for a few years.... but ended up dying.

A Cancer Cure? Made from the fluid from scabies ... however, the people who claim this works, have previously been arrested for practising medicine unauthorised.
