Vice (naturally) met a guy who has been injecting himself with snake venom for over 20 years and he looks better than ever. Although the venom can result in an agonizing death in very little time, Steve Ludwin has been sticking snake juice from rattlesnakes monocled cobras and vipers, in a syringe and mainlining it all the way to immortality.
The thought is that regular exposure to the venom helps your body develop a stronger immunity. While I’m not about to pick up a syringe of venom for myself, I’ve definitely got a big “huh” expression going on. How is this any different than an addiction?
