TO GO WITH China-medicine-science-bee,FEATURE by Neil CONNOR In a photo taken on August 2, 2013, doctor of traditional Chinese medicine Wang Menglin uses tweezers to hold a bee at his clinic on the outskirts of Beijing. Patients in China are swarming to acupuncture clinics to be given bee stings to treat or ward off life-threatening illness, arthritis, and cancer, practitioners say. More than 27,000 people have undergone the painful technique -- each session can involve dozens of punctures -- at Wang Menglin's clinic in Beijing, says the bee acupuncturist who makes his living from believers in the concept.
