Modern science thinks that we might have become human in the first place in order to get away from snakes. But once we realized that wasn't possible, human beings began working hard to develop antidotes to snake venom. But it turns out we already have lots of anti-venom?right inside our cells. It can protect us as long as we do not receive a large, lethal dose.
Ker Than writes in LiveScience.com that a protein called carboxypeptidase A is released by a certain type of cell in our bodies when we're bitten by a poisonous snake. This protein actually helps to break down the venom.
It's clear that, one way or another, humans and snakes were destined to live together in a sort of unholy alliance.
