’Poison’ relives the spine-chilling experiences of those fortunate enough to have survived life-threatening encounters with nature’s poisons.
Evolution has equipped both predators and prey with powerful arsenals of chemical weapons for attack and defence. The results are plants oozing noxious secretions, spiders with poison-coated webs, and rattlesnakes whose venom packs a flesh-eating punch.
Like plants that have evolved poisons to use as their own defence, human beings, too, are learning to harness the power of toxins for good, transforming plant chemicals and animal venoms into wonder drugs to fight cancer, heart disease and a host of other afflictions. It seems these ancient poisons we have tried for so long to avoid, may hold keys to our survival.
