The scientist mentioned, Struan Sutherland was a great man! Not only did his research provide the
modern foundations for handling envenomated persons he was also behind the development of funnel web
spider antivenom. He also wrote a very user friendly guide to backyard hydroponics.
Considering how venomous our snakes in Australia there are very few deaths, India has an estimated 46 thousand per year!!!
