ARSENIC-LIFE OR DEATH DRUG?

Post by dr.pnj » Sat Apr 23, 2005 1:33 pm

ARSENIC IF PRESENT IN OUR BODY OVER 70 PPM CAN LEAD TO MANY ABNORMALITIES
COULD U STAE A FEW EFFECTS OF ARSENIC ON DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE BODY
ALSO
ARSENIC IN ITS PURE OR DILUTED FORM IS USED TO CURE LEUKEMIA
HOW DOES THIS EFFECT DIFFER FROM ITS EFFECT ON THE REST OF THE BODY? :roll:

First off, please turn your caps key off.
I was just reading the book hiroshima by john hersey and I know exactly what you're talking about. While normally arsenic is poisonous like any other heavy metal, in fowler's solution it is used to cure leukemia.
