Snakey looking guy injects himself with snake venom daily for 20 years

This is just strange…this guy has been injecting himself with snake venom for more than 20 years.

It could become more popular than P…though will be very hard to obtain in NZ.

The puss filled holes and rotting body parts might not make this a mainstream style activity.¬†Although crack mouth is pretty awesome and that doesn’t seems to stop people huffing the pipe.

The hemotoxins which attack human blood cells in a tree viper’s venom can result in an agonising death in less than 30 minutes. The neurotoxins in a cobra bite can kill a person in half that time. for the past 20 years Steve Ludwin has been sticking all this lovely deadly snake juice in a syringe and mainlining it all the way to immortality. Privately milking an array of deadly snakes including rattlesnakes, monocled cobras, and a few casual vipers thrown in to the mix, Steve has been injecting what would for any normal human be fatal amounts venom into his body since the late 80s.

The basic principle – laid out by pioneer herpetologist, Bill Haast, who died last year at the age of 100 – is that regular exposure to the venom results in the body developing an immunity. Steve claims to not only never get ill, but that cobra venom is the ultimate pick me up, with effects lasting a days after injecting, making Steve stronger, faster and more resilient. Finally it looks like mainstream scientific research might be catching up.
