So the other day i learned that 1g of the botulinum toxon ( the stuff in botox that paralyses your face) Can kill some significantly large amonunt of people into the number was millions maybe more. Really makes you wonder why people do it tbh

90 nanograms of it could kilkl an average person!

Yes but they don't inject you with 1g of it! Even if you did have this dose, it wouldn't "kill everyone", it would most likely leave you with respiratory problems. There's antitoxins available anyway.

I know im not saying they would im just saying the effects it really has 1g is like nothing.

Similar amounts of nicotine would probably kill far more - it's all about the quantity, and used in small quantities it's quite safe. It's just more potent - the equivalent of what you're saying is that drinking 20 litres of Jack Daniels can kill you therefore why the hell do people drink it.

That said, I think it puts people facial features firmly into the uncanny valley... creepy. Reminds me of the film Brazil :?

It has medical uses too, not just cosmetic ones.

Yeah well thats allowed i geuss, health is more important than vanity

I suppose in the same aspect morphine is another form of heroin

Precisely. If you wanted to be exact, 100g would be enough to kill EVERYONE, as about 250 picograms per kg is considered lethal. But they isolate it... It's not like they just water the stuff down!!

cocaine is also used in medication.

If you want to really worry yourself, go and burn some waste... Get yourself some tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (or dioxin as it's commonly known). Although still far less toxic than botox, it's naturally occuring.

It doesn't come in bottles like Robinson's Fruit & Barley?!? "Dilute 1 part botulinum to 5 parts water for a minimum 15 years age reduction. WARNING - used in higher dilutions may cause mass extinction"

Im sure it does somewhere might need a lil bit more then 1/5 tho 1/6 may be suffice

Yeah its weird how things like that work out

Although people might not be sticking dioxin in their face, they do smoke cigarettes everyday, and one drop of pure nicotine is resoundingly fatal. It's just a case of potency, dilutions and horses for courses.
