Have you ever wondered what venom is, how it’s made and why or where it comes from and what it does?

It poisons, you say? Sure, people should definitely respect venom. But did you know that when administered in small doses it can heal you or relieve your pain, provided you know how to go about it? Some animals need venom in order to protect themselves against hostile environments. If they weren’t venomous, their time on this Earth would be short-lived, indeed. So who and what is venomous, a little bit or a lot? And why do plants use venom? No idea? Well, in that case get engrossed in this book—you’ll learn in no time. But watch out! Proceed at your own risk!
