Evoking the awesome power of nature's toxins, this program presents case studies of people who have survived near-fatal onslaughts from some of the deadliest poisons on Earth. It also shows how modern medical technology is turning the tables to use poisons in the fight against disease. Employing sophisticated animation and photography, the film explores ways in which poison can enter the body and how the human anatomy deals with such crises-enduring nervous system dysfunction, anaphylactic shock, severe swelling, and tissue destruction. Poisons are among nature's most ancient weapons. And yet, more and more, they hold keys to our survival.
