A woman in Spain died after undergoing a supposedly routine “bee acupuncture” treatment and then suffering an allergic reaction that put her in a coma.

The alternative medicine procedure is more or less what its name conjures up: Instead of a needle, an acupuncture practitioner injects bee venom into the body at certain points. In some instances, live bees are used to sting and inject venom into the person directly.

I cannot imagine how anybody could think this would be a good idea. According to the Wikipedia page on the subject, "[the] health benefits [of apitherapy] remain unsupported by evidence-based medicine."
Lots of myths about need and honey.

What was the dead woman being treated for?
