VICE 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 agonizing 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.
