To injure or kill by poison; to administer poison to.
Chemical that in one dose kills exactly 50% of the animals (usually rats and mice) in a test population (usually 60 to 200 animals) within a 14-day period. See median lethal dose.
A substance that causes injury, illness, or death
Synonym = toxicant. Any chemical that causes harmful biological effects.
Substance which damages an immortal without halo clash and is not healed by panacea.
Any plant, element, or substance ingested to enhance or diminish physiological, cognitive, and/or sensory functions. Any plant, element, or substance ingested with intent to radically alter the constitution of the flesh.
Class A or B Poisons are classified by the DOT into two classes. Those in Class A are highly toxic materials which, even in very small quantities, present a hazard to life. Examples of such gases are cyanogen, phosgene and hydrocyanic acid. Class B poisons, though less toxic, are presumed to present a serious threat to health during transportation.
any substance that causes injury or illness or death of a living organism
kill by its poison; "This mushrooms can kill"
kill with poison; "She poisoned her husband"
add poison to; "Her husband poisoned her drink in order to kill her"
administer poison to; "She poisoned her husband but he did not die"
a biologically active chemical substance, such that when it ends up inside the organism in small quantities, it causes grave, permanent damage to a definite degree
a material that inhibits other substances, especially enzymes, and the vital biochemical processes they are involved in
an inert substance
an organic or inorganic substance that causes injury, illness or perhaps death in an individual or organism that comes in contact with it
a substance capable of producing adverse effects on an individual under appropriate conditions
a substance of definite chemical composition, which by virtue of its constitution is capable
a substance that can cause injury, illness or death
a substance that can make you (or an animal) sick or kill you if you eat, breathe or touch it
a substance that can result in abnormal body function and has no medical use
a substance that causes injury or illness when it gets into a person's body
a substance that has toxic effects and may cause bodily harm if exposure occurs
a substance that has toxic effects and may injure you or make you sick if you are exposed
a substance that, when swallowed or absorbed, is capable of producing injury or death
a substance which, in every quantity, however, small, and in all circumstances of health, has a destructive tendency on the powers of life, or is anti-vital
a substance which when introduced into or absorbed by an organism causes damage
a toxic substance that must be eaten or absorbed through the skin to take effect
substance that by its chemical action can kill or injure a living thing. BACK
A substance that causes harm to an organism when the organism ingests (eats) it. Poisons can vary in strength; sometimes a poison just makes the organism sick, other times it may kill it. Many species of mushrooms and plants are poisonous to humans. Poison should not be confused with venom.
Any toxic substance that upsets normal functions in living organisms by surface absorption, injection or ingestion, eventually leading to death if the dosage is sufficiently strong. When ?poison? is on a product label it means that the chemical or substance inside is highly toxic.
a substance that is toxic or poisonous upon contact or ingestion
Any substance harmful to living tissue when applied in small doses. Determining factors include concentration, exposure time, particle size, affinity for tissue, and sensitivity of the exposed tissue to that compound.
any substance which is harmful to the health of a living organism.
Any substance that can cause severe distress or death if ingested, breathed in, or absorbed through the skin. Many substances that normally cause no problems, including water and most vitamins, can be poisonous if taken in too large of a quantity. Poison treatment depends on the substance: if there are treatment instructions on the substance's container and you are sure it contained no other item, follow those directions immediately. Always contact your nearest Poison Control Center if you are concerned about possible poison ingestion.
Substance that, taken into or formed within the organism, impairs the health of the organism and may kill it. SN toxic substance
a chemical that adversely affects health by causing injury, illness, or death.
A toxic substance that can cause death or illness.
A substance that causes illness or death when eaten, drunk or absorbed into the body.
Any substance (solid, liquid, or gas), which by reason of an inherent deleterious property tends to destroy life or impair health.
any chemical substance that causes illness, injury, or death
a substance that can harm you if it is swallowed or gets on your skin.
In the context of biology, poisons are substances that can cause injury, illness, or death to organisms, usually by chemical reaction or other activity on the molecular scale, when a sufficient quantity is absorbed by an organism. Paracelsus, the father of toxicology states-- "Everything is poison, there is poison in everything. Only the dose makes a thing not a poison".
