Leeches, a valuable tool in hospitals

Their taste for blood might be scary, but they actually are a valuable tool in hospitals around the world. They are leeches.

    As a nurse I used leaches on a patient whose finger was reattached - the results were amazing! Also look at maggots for wounds - they don't destroy healthy tissue.

    When my science-loving child was 5, he was obsessed with leeches. They were his favorite animal. He even wrote a little song about them: Leeches oh leeches you make me dizzy, When you do your dance of attaching to me..."
