Student given 190 bee stings in pain experiment

A PhD student has allowed bees to sting him 190 times - to find out which part of the body it hurts the most.

Michael Smith, from Cornell University, chose 25 locations around his body to let the bee sting him.

Despite subjecting himself to barbs in intimate areas, Mr Smith found that the most painful area was the inside of his nostril.

He told BBC Radio 5 live's Drive: "When you get stung there your whole body reacts... I would not recommend it."
