    Well, I was wondering about building immunity/tolerance to poison. About inorganic vs organic arsenic and other stuff.

    That's weird. Don't people who are poisoned slowly just linger in a sickly state instead of dying outright?

    Like how old smokers cough all the time and look all wrinkly but don't necessarily have emphysema or lung cancer.

    Wow. I think I did study some inorganic and organic metals stuff and I bet the knowledge can just be applied for that. Not sure about immunity to poison. I'll probably have to read up on that.

    Dare I ask why?

    @Marmotini Like the new name fwiw.

    Well, I was reading that brown rice and rice products often have relatively high levels of arsenic in them. Turns out some kinds of arsenic are more toxic than others. This led to discussion about building tolerance. Interestingly, drugs and alcohol were mentioned.
    The issue is, once you pass your tolerance...
    Arsenic is apparently a carcinogen, so even if you survive it, long term your chances of bladder cancer go up.

    As far as I know, building a tolerance for toxins mainly works with animal venom and isn't very practical because you have to keep injecting venom to maintain the increase of antibodies, which aren't really permanent - you'd have to keep doing it.

    Technically it works. Practically it is dangerous and probably not worth maintaining a garage full of vipers to keep harvesting venom.

    Oh I didn't see this part.

    Interesting... I'll definitely have to read up on that. +
