Will you drink a concoction made from drowned snake?

Venomous snake was soaked in rice wine to become medicine. Will you drink this if asked?

China is known for its traditional medicine which uses different parts of animals to cure various maladies. Snake wine is one of the most common traditional medicines taken made from a snake drowned in a vat of alcohol.

A video was circulating showing a venomous snake being stuffed into a bottle filled with rice wine. The snake tries to free itself as the couple forcefully pushes the reptile inside the bottle.

The snake drowns as it attempts to escape. In the last attempt to remain alive, it pushes its head to the top of the bottle to breathe. The snake becomes still and the man taps the glass to make sure it is dead.

The process done is called steeping wherein a venomous snake is soaked in alcohol for several months. The snake's venom is denatured by alcohol making it inactive. The wine is consumed in small shots to cure a range of illnesses from nearsightedness to hair loss and considered as an aphrodisiac.


Poor snake. The supposed cure is not even proven to be effective.
