We met with a guy who's been injecting himself with snake venom for 20 years and he looks better than ever.

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.

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
Dude I hope you read this. Thanks it takes brave men like you to pioneer things like this again thanks try to work on getting into a medical study. Put this on the books. Humanity needs all the help we can get.
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...????
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!
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.
I love how he gives ZERO FUCKS, about what anyone thinks!!! Lol
Respect to you sir!! Its YOUR life, if you wanna shoot up snake venom and ride a skateboard thru BUS traffic.... do your thing brother! ..... FUCK em!! 💪
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 ...
@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.
@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 .-)))
U have a drug problem u should get help bud God bless u let the snake bite u in order AND AC DC why use needles bud? Can u answer that question ...(sounds like your addicted to sticking needles in ur arm you answered ur own question YOU HAVEN'T STOPPED IT NO HAVE U WONDER WHY?....
it's called needle fixation https://www.drugrehab.org/needle-fixation/ ... i myself got drunk and had fun tonight, this dude had a fucked up leg with puss spewing 5" across the room ..... very sad, very lost man
Sechskies Eun Ji Won and rookie singers Lee Soo Hyun and Kim Eun Bi performed the third OST single titled "Love Song". The rookies, who are both training to debut in HYWY Entertainments girl group HYWY Girls, joined the veteran to sing about falling in love with an unlikely person. The rhythmic medium temp track is the perfect tune to make your spring days even brighter.
As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
