The age-old therapy of using maggots to clean wounds is making a comeback, and helping diabetics keep their limbs. When you have diabetes, there’s no such thing as a small wound.

This helps to speed up the process of healing. Maggot treatment is available at many Singapore-based hospitals, and the maggots are bred by a local life-sciences company, ORIGIN Scientia1.
