See the main article for this category, Toxins.


The term "toxin" is thrown around rather lightly by alties, even though they often can't actually tell you what the exact toxin is, or how it is produced in the body, or how it accumulates in the body, why it can't be gotten rid of like ammonia (through conversion to urea, dilution with water, and expulsion from the body via urination), and they're completely oblivious to things like, oh, dose, epidemiology, basic chemistry, yada yada. Detoxification, more popularly known as cleanses, is big business in the altie world. Chelation therapy is a more formal — if less popular — altie attempt to remove "toxins".

Anyway, this category collects a few of those things that are considered toxins.
