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."

I liked this quote. Discuss amongst yourselves ;)

I work in a Research Center where we have Biologists and Toxicologists... they use a much shorter form of it

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!
