Every year, an estimated 2.7 million people are bitten by venomous snakes, resulting in death for more than 100,000 people and life-long disfigurement and disability for 400,000 more.
To raise awareness of this neglected health crisis, the Lillian Lincoln Foundation produced the “Minutes to Die” documentary which focuses on the human impact of venomous snakebites, "the world's most ignored way to die".
The documentary is titled “Minutes to Die” for one simple reason. If you’re bitten by a venomous snake, the first thing that typically happens is panic. The panic of not knowing if you or someone you love will have days, or hours, or minutes to die.
