Paracelsus, the Father of Toxicology, wrote "All substances are poisons; there are none which is not a poison. The right dose differentiates a poison from the remedy."

They say "the poison is in the dose"

That's GREAT! I'm going to use that next time when I talk about "dose" being so important and the doctors look at me like I'm nuts! HAH!
