A man named Bill Haast injected himself
with snake venom for several years in an

    • There was some ancient king near Greece or Mesopotamia who was paranoid about poisoning, so he built up an immunity to every known poison. Then he got depressed and tried to kill himself - by poisoning. He ended up ducking himself up, but didn't die, so he just lived in pain for a while.

    • He was a researcher who was bitten many times and advocated snake venom research. That being said, his own blood was never used to help make antivenin and he never ‘built an immunity.’ Humans don’t create antibodies from the majority of snake venoms which is why antivenin is made using horses.
