Getting High Injecting Snake Venom

63419 ratings | 8372758 views
We met with a guy who's been injecting himself with snake venom for 20 years and he looks better than ever. -- Check out Steve's Comment Response video here! http://bit.ly/Venom-Response -- 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.

Can’t be legal to have those snakes in an apartment

Severly diluted snake venom can help against blood clotting. This guy is crazy but the effects for medicine knowledge is so precious. He should sterilize and dilute it. Brave for sure but look at his wrinkle free skin. Might be on to something!!! How come he can keep such snakes in UK?? US -insanity is normal but in UK???

This guy is a real bad ass, how can someone harm him if even he doesn't know how to harm himself? He is like trying suicide but always failed. If he is a political big fish, he would never be afraid of being poisoned. He is small-penised, but only because he's large-balled!!

The Guy shakes like a naked African in Russian winter. Other than that, do what you want but I will stick with Christ for my youth. By the way, I am in my 40's and folks think I am twenty-eight. I have never done any drug at any time. Secret to youthfulness perhaps? I don't think he is as swift with that stuff as his hero.

I am a race horse looking to step up my game. I'll be 3 next year, gonna make a run at the Kentucky derby, and I'm looking into PEDs, or in this case, PEVs. I'm looking for a place where I can score some pure cobra venom, like the shit Secretariat had, any suggestions? Somewhere that doesn't ask too many questions and can keep their fucking mouths shut when I triple crown this bitch. HMU

Jason Cook (2 days ago)
I'm confused, on the one hand this guy says the injections are helping him become immune, on the other I have heard that once bitten your body becomes less resistant to it the next time. In fact I saw a documentary about guy who died from his third/ fourth bite...????
Andreas Rossier (2 days ago)
Jason Cook to be bitten or to inject yourself with venom is not the same thing, the dose of venom is not the same if a snake bites you (1st it‘s pure venom and high dose like maybe 7 to 8 drops) if you inject yourself (it’s diluted with water and only 1 or 2 drops) so to you and all haters... start to think right beacause this guy is smart!

Over the counter pre workout formula works just as good and without the side effects that the cobra venom gives. And you dont have to inject it!

Couldn't people like this save the lives of people that get bitten by snakes? If someone is allergic to antivenom made in the bodies of horses, couldn't people like this guy have much safer antivenom made from their blood? Just a thought.

Hajar Renate Midbrød (5 days ago)
yeah ... so I am struggling to understand why a seemingly intelligent man would do this to himself ? is it mental illness ? death wish ? .. I just dont get it .. and what job does he have to afford all these snakes ...
derkaturka (3 days ago)
@Hajar Renate Midbrød Yes they do at 4:13, although briefly, they mention that his first job in London was at a snake place, unpacking snakes and other exotic animals. And then right after that he goes right into how it has/did evolve into a job on its own. Not trying to be a stickler here, there is a lot of info. But my point is that they did NOT emphasize it because "VICE" gets more clicks because of this seeming to be controversial. Again, you cant sell science by being straight forward, nine out of ten times.
Hajar Renate Midbrød (3 days ago)
@derkaturka that was not my point.. the point was they made NO mention of him being a Freak for SCIENCE AT ALL !!!
derkaturka (3 days ago)
​@Hajar Renate Midbrød It does not SELL as well if the guy does NOT look controversial, right?!? How else do you sell science to the masses?? lol
Hajar Renate Midbrød (3 days ago)
@derkaturka oh that was not mentioned in the video that he has given his body over to science , would have been great if they had included this information in this video so that it looks less like sheer madness and more of a beneficial science sacrifice on his part , its far more understandable from a science perspective . so he is basically a human guinea pig for the advancement of science .-)))
derkaturka (3 days ago)
He is given the snakes at this point, specifically for medical research. Why ask a victim, "hey, could you hold still for a sec, while I pull some of this puss out of this hole forming on your body?"
