Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Toxin
William H. Sautter of Virginia in a letter to the Wall Street Journal on
12/30/02 points out that the word TOXIN refers to poisonous compounds
produced by living organisms or the related proteins such as ricin. By thi
accounting, perchlorate is NOT a toxin.

Perhaps the word POISON would be more appropriate when referring to

OK, this is a nitpick, but low doses of TOXINS produce ANTI-TOXINS that
a degree of immunity. Low doses of perchlorate do not produce an immunity.
Homeopathy does not appear to apply to perchlorate.

Does the word POISON carry more urgency than the work TOXIN? Is a
in order?
