The coemolic fluid in earthworms, a fluid which helps them digest food, has been discovered to be able to kill cancer cells.
Polish scientists, in a test, placing the earthworm on specific diets and in certain conditions, found the fluid to kill 75% of cancer cells and none of the healthy cells.
The scientists are looking to see what the results would be when tested on a working lung.
Watch the scientists discuss their discovery below:
