Australian Sea Snails May Hold Key To Curing Colorectal Cancer

Research scientists have long known that cures for deadly diseases can be discovered in the humblest (and least likely) of places. After all, Penicillin came from moldy bread accidentally left in a petri dish over the weekend.

But, sea snails curing cancer? 

Apparently. It seems that the mucus produced by the White Rock Shell sea snail, common to the shores of Australia and New Zealand, contains chemicals found to be effective at fighting off colorectal cancer.
