Snakes don’t kill by suffocation
In 1994, a rogue herpetologist challenged the dogma that constricting snakes kill by suffocation. He didn’t think it made sense. If suffocation were the mechanism, the prey would have died much more slowly —minutes rather than seconds. Instead, he thought the immense pressure from the snake’s contorted body sent its prey into cardiac arrest. It has taken 20 years, but researchers have finally proved him right.

Take the time to watch it all. Minute 9:47 is when you will be shocked. But do not jump there, watch the movie and be ready :D

Hi good morning I like to ask Tobago has been around for 2000 years ..
I'm I wrong ...
With on chemicals in them and the native Indians lived without cancer or maybe few and far between that one or two did get a cancer because we didn't have the technology but my question is I believe tobacco was.... pure without chemicals ...
and it didn't hurt as many people as it does today so why is the government allowing all these chemicals in a cigarette or is the lead in the tobacco found naturally ? these are some of the questions? that I wish that video would have put in.!
