The lethal dose (LD50) for rabbis is 2000mg/kg[edit]

Okay, so what. To the lay person, that's a number, nothing more. Can you add a parentheses comparing that number to, say, cyanide or something, just to get a a sense of what we're talking about? Polar Bear in the Jungle Peter Tosh > Bob Marley 04:32, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

According to Wikipedia, salt has an LD50 of 3000-8000mg/kg. So, it's not really that toxic. You can remove the LD50 from this article, if you want.--Krejtalk 17:09, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

Curing AIDS...before it was discovered?[edit]

Really? 1977 can't be a correct date... --Seth Peck (talk) 18:05, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

You're right. The patent was actually filed sometime around 1994.--Krejtalk 18:11, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Hold on[edit]

Is it true that silver peroxide is not effective for any of the conditions some claim it addresses? I sincerely doubt it, as it's unstable, it decomposes to silver ions, and silver ions are a very effective antiseptic. Silver nitrate, or lunar caustic, is a chemical cauterizer that's still used in Europe as a remedy for warts, both because it causes infected tissue to blister and fall off, and because the silver ions have anti-viral properties. Silver nitrate has also been used as a topical antibiotic. Does anyone know? Ghostface Editah (talk) 21:07, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

If you have any relevant information, please feel free to add it. I've got nothing.--Krejtalk 20:14, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

I know nothing about patents. Can someone please edit the article to explain what relevance the "curing AIDS" patent has to Tetrasil?--Krejtalk 17:19, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

You can patent a hot corned beef on rye wrapped in tin foil to be worn as a device to keep one's head warm under a football helmet. [9] Also, this article lost credibility with me with the first "gasp." That's not snark. It's a middle schooler being clever. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 18:38, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
